U.S. Navy Ensign Alexandra Scarfe, a 2022 Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets alumna who earned her degree in biochemistry from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, was selected as the Hokie Hero for Saturday’s football game against Purdue University.

The Hokie Hero program honors corps alumni who are deployed. Recipients are highlighted by Bill Roth and Mike Burnop during their radio broadcast of Hokie football games, on the Corps of Cadets website, and in the Corps Review alumni magazine.

Scarfe is serving as a surface warfare officer in the 7th Fleet area of operation onboard USS America, the U.S. Navy’s only forward-deployed amphibious assault ship, out of Sasebo, Japan. During her time in the corps, she was a member of Echo Company.
