JROTC PANTHER BATTALION
22 MAY, 2020
Hello my JROTC families and cadets.
Let me just say, this has been a crazy year. It was not at all what anyone expected I'm sure.
However, I wanted to tell you all how remarkable of an experience it has been for me this year. Getting to meet all of you and watch you grow has been truly an eye opening experience. Being Battalion Commander, as difficult as it may be, is so rewarding and fun. That is because of all of the wonderful people I am surrounded by. Each and everyone of you has the potential to be anything you set your mind to.
As we all know this was a JPA year. For some, this may have been your first and for others this may be your second JPA, nonetheless it was nerve racking. I never thought I could be as proud as I am for how hard you all worked, it makes me smile ear to ear when I think about all of you! This year you've all proved why this is an "Honor Unit with Distinction." Without all of you and our amazing instructors, JPA would not have been such a success. Cheers to you all in your future endeavors whether it is in JROTC or in life. Keep pushing yourself to be better and better, don't ever be afraid to try new things because you'll learn a lot along the way. I'm going to miss you all, but Ill be around here and there.
Once again thank you to our instructors for "motivating us to be better citizens." And of course thank you to the parents and families of the cadets for always believing in them and supporting them.
