Kimberley Roe, a graduating senior at the University of San Diego, has been selected as one of the first women to ever be assigned to submarine duty for the United States Navy.
A mathematics major in the College of Arts and Sciences, an Honors Program participant and a Midshipman in the San Diego Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC), Roe has achieved extensive academic and personal success while at USD.
