PROSSER JROTC November NEWSLETTER We started off the month by welcoming the 8 th graders during our Open House. Hundreds of 8 th graders from all over the city saw what Prosser’s all about. They even got a performance from our JROTC D&B.
Canned Food Drive Turkey Give Away This month was all about making sure everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. JROTC held a canned food drive and collected over three thousand pounds of cans. They also participated in a turkey give away, sponsored by Alderman Emma Mitts, to make sure every family in need had something to eat on Thanksgiving.
Junior Achievement Blood Drive Our 2 nd Blood Drive,held on Report Card Pick-up day, was very successful. Many students, parents, and staff donated. Thank you to all who participated. Cadets visited Ella Flagg Young. They taught kids about economy and the environment.
New members to our Battalion Staff Let’s welcome our new Battalion S-3, no one better than C/CPT Estrada. He has proven his dedication to our Battalion and to D&B, so he was chosen for this position. Congratulations! “I feel very proud that Major Shepphard appointed Ayala and I to be the Battalion Surgeons. It is a great responsibility that we gladly take on. Preparing to become the battalion surgeons was an experience we will never forget. We assisted a training at Rush Medical University. There, we were taught how to give CPR on a hands-on training. We learned how to treat minor and severe bleeding and all there is about first aid by ER doctors. Ayala and I are now certified in first-aid. Our job is to attend to all activities with cadets to provide first-aid in the case of any cadet needing of it. The well-being of every cadet in the Battalion is our responsibility.” -C/SFC Quinonez C/ SFCAyala and C/SFC Quinonez
