There is no Color Guard practice Thursday. Bad weather predictions cancelled the Choir UIL Competition tonight. The meet has been rescheduled for tomorrow, leaving our Choir with no charter bus transportation. SFC Watkins will be operating the bus to get Choir to their competition.
Parents, cadets, community stakeholders, and our wonderful national-level award presenters. The JROTC Award Ceremony is Friday, 3 May at 6:30 pm. The location is the Performing Arts Center (Auditorium) at LHS. Our address is 1263 North Main Street, Mansfield, Texas 76063. Our POC is SFC James Watkins at 817-999-7946. Cadets need to be here in uniform before 6:20 pm for roll call. If a cadet misses roll call, their name will be dropped from the script so we don’t waste folks’ time calling names of those not in attendance.
Presenters will sit at the front, right auditorium seats. Each seat will be marked so awards and presenters are in same order for ease. We have great awards from Jewish War Veterans, US Army Recruiting Command, Special Forces Association, Daughters of 1812, and the Scottish Rite. These are but just a few. We thank each presenter, in advance for spending their time with us.
Admission is free. Families are encouraged to come see their cadets’ many accomplishments this year. Refreshments will be served after the ceremony. We expect to finish about 7:45 pm.
The MISD Pass & Review finished with the outstanding marching of our cadets. Daniel Zuniga took the reins and led the battalion. Alex Sims, our CSM, was responsible for the entire Cadet Corps comprised of all five MISD Junior ROTC programs. Special thanks to Mr. Barber, Assistant Director of Custodial Services for Mansfield ISD for his words of encouragement, Coach Tammy Lusinger, MISD Athletic Director, our families and friends. Pass & Review is a parade-like inspection for all cadets.
We want to thank all those that attended our 2019 JROTC Military Ball. The night was truly one to remember, with cadets and family members wearing their perfect attire to create the atmosphere befitting a “Ball”. Special thanks to veterans, firefighters, and law enforcement members that also attended. It was an honor to host the Omar Milan Family of Mansfield, and we again remark how beautiful the girls were for this event. Army, National Guard and Marine recruiters helped make the event a success. Thank you!!!
Cadets had a terrific time at Plano’s “GoApe Treetop Adventure” Friday. We want to thank our recruiters from the United States Army and the Texas Army National Guard, for this day would not have been possible without the required adult chaperones. Lunch was provided by the Texas Army National Guard and Jason’s Deli of Mansfield. Cadets really appreciate your and Mrs. Olvera’s assistance. Thank you!
