Morgan State Alum Promoted to Brigadier General

Morgan State University alum Raymond Scott Dingle has been promoted to Brigadier General at Fort Myer, Virginia. A 1988 graduate of MSU, Dingle has served nearly 30 years in the U.S. Army. His military experience includes tours of duty in Afghanistan, Iraq and, more recently, a command post in Germany.

General Dingle joins a growing list of Morgan graduates rising in the ranks of the U.S. military. Morgan State’s first general officer, Brigadier General George M. Brooks, was promoted in 1979.

Three years ago, the National Society of Pershing Rifles Alumni Association honored Morgan graduates who retired as general officers in the United States military. The honorees included: Four-star General Larry R. Ellis, ’69, U.S. Army (Ret.), Four-star General William E. “Kip” Ward, ’71, U.S. Army (Ret.), Maj. Gen. Arthur T. Dean, ’67, U.S. Army (Ret.), Maj. Gen. Thomas L. Prather, Jr., ’62, U.S. Army (Ret.), Lt. Gen. Allen E. Chandler, M.D., FAAP, ’57, U.S. Army (Ret.), Lt. Gen. H. Steven Blum, ’73, U.S. Army (Ret.), and Brig. Gen. Avon C. James, ’51, U.S. Air Force (Ret.).
