Washingtonville High School JROTC Awards Night

On Wednesday, 18 April 2018, the Washingtonville High School held their Annual Awards Night.

This is Cadet Thompson’s third year in a row earning this medal. That was followed with other awards given by local and national organizations to the deserving cadets. The night ended with a drill demonstration for all of the family, friends, and guest. Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Witte, the Cadet Battalion Commander, stated that, “This was the best Awards Night that I can remember. It is nice that the cadets get recognized for all the school and community support they give throughout the year. Our Army Instructors, LTC Moore and Chief Brickel, really motivate and drive the cadets to be better citizens, people” The cadets are now readying themselves for a trip our nation’s Capital, Washington DC, a charter fishing outing, and the annual summer camp at the New York Military Academy.
