International Student Hall of Fame

ISHOF Wall

History

On August 18, 1975 Warrant Officer Robert John May of the Australian Army became the first international student to attend the United States Army Sergeants Major Academy. Since then the Academy has graduated 698 international students from 72 partner countries.
The International Student Hall of Fame was established on 26 June 2009 to recognize those international students who graduated the Sergeants Major Course and have gone on to assume the position of their respective country or armed forces’ senior enlisted advisor, a position similar that of the U.S. Army’s Sergeant Major of the Army, and have made lasting contributions to the leader development and education of the Corps of
Noncommissioned Officers of their respective countries.
