1 May 2015 - AFJROTC Awards Ceremony

Here is a portion of Col. Whicker's e-mail (Dixie High School's AFJROTC program) to Bill Toole.

"Colonel Toole:

First of all, let me thank you once again for your firm support of our program.  We honestly could not run this program without the many people like you who believe in these cadets as our future.

As you know, our annual National Awards Ceremony is scheduled at the Dixie High School Auditorium on Friday, 1 May 2015.  Social hour starts at 1730 in the Dixie High Commons, with the Awards Ceremony starting promptly at 1900 hours in the adjacent auditorium.  We would like to ask you to ensure all of your organization’s members are aware so they can plan to show support to this great bunch of youth.  There will be food available during the social hour, so you won’t need to eat dinner before you come!  The Booster Club is also organizing a Silent Auction, which we invite you to participate in.

GLENN R. WHICKER, Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
Senior Aerospace Science Instructor"

Three 2014 Pups and one 2015 Candidate are shown in this photo of an exhibit drill at Dixie High School.  They placed first in state.  The Marine Corps League Detachment has presented certificates to two worthy cadets each year and this year will be no exception.  Please join us to honor these cadets and this program which has been extremely supportive of our Devil Pup program.
