Spartan named 3rd Battalion Young Marine of the Year

Sydney Cardwell ’20 recently has been named the 3rd Battalion Young Marine of the Year. Sydney was up against eight other Young Marines from across Ohio and was chosen based upon an essay and her answers in front of a board of officers.

Sydney is a member of the Assisi Scholars program, the Drama Guild, Gymnastics Team and Ultimate Frisbee Team. She also is the 1st Sergeant of the Young Marines of Cincinnati. Sydney decided to become a Young Marine five years ago because, “I wanted to push myself to be a better person. I was going through a tough time and wanted to know I could things on my own.”

She will be traveling to Washington D.C. to become part of the Public Affairs Team on the National level for Young Marines. She will spend five days with the Fox Press Team at the Pentagon and then spend the next two years traveling the world reporting back to other Young Marines.
