U.S. Air Force Capt. Andrew Lott, a 2011 Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets alumnus who earned a degree in civil engineering from the College of Engineering, was selected as the Hokie Hero for Thursday’s football game against Pittsburgh.
The Hokie Hero program honors corps alumni who are deployed. Recipients are highlighted by Jon Laaser and Mike Burnop during their radio broadcast of Hokie football games, on the Corps of Cadets website, and in the Corps Review magazine.
Lott is deployed to southwest Asia as a member of the 335th Fighter Squadron. He is a weapon systems officer on an F-15E Strike Eagle in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.
As a senior, Lott was the corps’ regimental adjunct, the executive officer for Foxtrot Company, and the cadet member-at-large for the Class of 2011.
