Air Force 2nd Lt. Amy C. Farr has been commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force through the ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) program.

ROTC is an educational program designed to provide college students an opportunity to be Air Force officers after completing military study courses and bachelor’s degree requirements at a host college or university. The program is the largest and oldest source of commissioned officers for the Air Force, with a mission to produce highly qualified military leaders and better citizens for America.

Farr is a clinical nurse assigned to the University of Pittsburgh, Pa.

She is the daughter of Bradley Farr of Williamstown and Cynthia Hintz of Marietta. She is also the granddaughter of Barbara Hintz and Douglas and Marilyn Farr, all of Marietta.

Farr graduated in 2009 from Williamstown High School.
