(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets will participate in cleaning up Coquina beach on Nov 5.

Clean up will begin at 7 a.m. and go until 12 p.m., but cadets are not required to stay the whole time.

LRHS JROTC teacher, Lt. Col. Richard Roller said, “The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens and by doing this environmental clean up.
