Congratulations to Cadet Simon Krauthamer for placing 16th overall in the MCJROTC Service Championships in Las Vegas. 1500 MCJROTC Cadets nationwide competed in the national postal competition and individual state championships to qualify for this event.
His score and placing qualify him for the National JROTC InterService Championships in Anniston. Alabama on March 23-25, where he will be competing against the top 155 cadets from across the country representing Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine JROTC programs. Simon is 1 of 11 Cadets, from all programs, representing North Carolina in the 2017 National JROTC InterService Championships. We wish him luck.
FOR MORE INFO ON THE 2017 JROTC NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:
Our Drill team did a great job at the South Point HS Raider Invitational Drill Meet.
WE PLACED 3RD OVERALL!
1st Place in Unarmed Platoon // 3rd place 1st year Color guard
2nd place Armed Platoon // 3rd place Orienteering
We are so proud of our cadets!
NOTE: In order to build upon our success going forward, THE ENTIRE team needs to be at practice Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We know that many cadets attend after school tutoring with their teachers. 1st Sgt. Barksdale has asked if the parents would support drill practice beginning and ending a little later (3:00 pm - 4:30 pm) to allow kids who are staying for after school tutoring time to have time to practice with the entire team. Please let 1st Sgt. Barksdale know if this schedule would work better.
