Join us on SUE Rising Radio as Michelle Bergquist, your host of The College Series, has a conversation with Sophia Righthouse, Master Gunnery Sergeant with the Young Marines, about why she was nominated for and won the National NextGen Award at the 2021 National Women of Influence Awards. She is currently a Freshman at Norwich University, The Senior Military College of Vermont, and is attending with an Army ROTC Scholarship.  She is a member of the Corps of Cadets, the Cavalry Unit, the Cheer Team, and is a Norwich Ambassador.
