Our cadets have been taking care of business so far this year, and our business is community service. We're already 2/3 of the way to our goal of 1,500 community service hours. Instead of coasting, we're just shifting gears and getting started. Here's a few highlights from the past couple of weeks:
- Yesterday over 30 of our cadets marched in the Sherwood Veteran's Day Parade. Other participants included Congressman French Hill, Mayor Virginia Young, Lt Governor Tim Griffin, and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge.
- On November 1st, the Arkansas Blood Institute held it's bi-annual blood drive at JHS. Nearly 40 cadets provided the heavy lifting, legwork, and patient care for more than 60 JHS faculty and scholar potential donors.
- On October 30, 2018, 36 cadets ran the haunted house, escape room, and concession stand for Murrell Taylor Elementary's annual "Haunted Taylor" event.
- On October 26, 2018, AFJROTC provided 29 cadets to run the haunted house and assist scholars and their families at Warren Dupree Elementary's "Fall Fest" event.
- On October 22, 2018, 27 cadets volunteered at Murrell Taylor Elementary to set up for their "Sock Hop" by decorating the gymnasium for the event.
- On October 21, 2018, 15 cadets helped Warren Dupree Elementary prepare for their "Fall Fest" by constructing a haunted house, organizing a supply room, and moving thousands of books from one library room to a storage facility.
