LRHS JROTC cadets march in Myakka’s Christmas Parade

Corps (JROTC) participated in the Myakka Christmas Parade.

JROTC instructor Lt. Col. Richard Roller said, “It was good considering that we had our winter formal less than 12 hours before. We had about 50 percent participation which is more than I expected. It was great for us to go out and support Myakka as a part of the community.”

Senior Mandy Germain said, “It went well everyone participated in cadences and we even had a let one (first year JROTC student) call [marching] cadence, which was a first.”
