Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha speaks to students at the KTC.

A living hero visited Pittsburg State University in April when former Staff Sgt. Clinton L. Romesha came to campus. In February, President Barack Obama bestowed the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest military decoration, on Romesha in a ceremony at the White House.
The award recognizes Romesha for his courageous actions in a deadly battle at a remote combat post in Afghanistan in 2009.
Pittsburg State honored Romesha for his extraordinary service on April 25 at the PSU Veterans Memorial, where a paver was installed
in his name. Romesha also spent some of his time at PSU with ROTC cadets in PSU’s Department of Military Science and was a guest at the Gorilla Battalion Spring Awards Ceremony.
