Since high school, Stephany Quintero has been passionate about serving as a member of the U.S. Army. Now a senior accounting and finance double major and member of ROTC at Ouachita Baptist University, Quintero has been named in the 2% of college students around the country accepted to the Army’s Educational Delay Program.

Originally from Arkadelphia, Ark., Quintero will graduate from Ouachita in May 2021 as a 2nd Lieutenant and has been chosen – among 6,000 cadets – as one of 136 cadets nationwide for the U.S. Army’s Educational Delay, an honor that defers service years and allows cadets to further pursue their studies for medical or law degrees. Of those 136 cadets, Quintero is one of 23 who were selected for the law school option.
