Morgan State University alum Raymond Scott Dingle was promoted Brigadier General at Fort Myer, Virginia, this fall making him the 16th General Officer to graduate from the historically Black college in Maryland.

Since his graduation in 1988 from Morgan State, General Dingle, has served almost 30 years in the U. S. Army. His experiences include tours in Iraq, Afghanistan and, most recently, a command post in Germany.

In 1979, Morgan State University produced its first general officer, Brigadier General George M. Brooks.

Three years ago, the National Society of Pershing Rifles Alumni Association honored Morgan graduates who retired as general officers in the United States military.
