Peace support operations: Morgan French, a student at Davidson College and Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadet, has returned from three weeks in Poland, where she was participating in peace support operations training alongside cadets from Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland.
The training program, Cadet Language and Cultural Immersion Training, was French’s first training deployment as a cadet.
The program requires participating cadets to complete a weeklong training session at Fort Knox, Ky. Afterward, they are deployed to partner nations where they are immersed in the local cultures and languages.

The deployed cadets will spend three weeks involved in assisting with current Army missions that range from community outreach projects to teaching English to local children or hosting country military personnel. They are not only getting a total immersion in another culture, but are also building positive relationships and helping the people of partner nations.

Certification: Jennifer Frame, RN and Women’s Services educator, has received the special certification as a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse (MSCN) through the Multiple Sclerosis Nurses International Certification Board.
She is a member of the International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses (IOMSN). She is also an Ambassador, volunteer and team leader for the National MS Society and is the leader of the Lake Norman Multiple Sclerosis Support Group that meets monthly on the third Friday of every month in Davidson.
Frame has been employed as a nurse at Lake Norman Regional Medical Center for 15 years.
“As an RN for 25 years and as an MS patient for 28 years, I wanted to use my experience to help and educate others with MS and those who take care of the MS patient,” said Frame. “My hope is to teach and work with patients and staff about taking care of the whole patient with MS. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease with several sub-types and a wide variety signs and symptoms that affects about 2.5 million people worldwide. I will be available to help staff, social workers and patients to give the MS patient the best care.”
