Cadets from the Panther Battalion recently competed in the Treasure Coast Chapter Military Officer Association of America – JROTC 5K Run/Walk. The run was held on Saturday, February 4th in the Tradition area of Port Saint Lucie, Florida. A number of cadets assisted with the event by handing out refreshments, parking cars, and setting up for the event. The rest of the cadets competed in the run. These cadets, although tired, pushed through and finished the run. They gave it their all. In the end, the Panther Battalion came in 3rd place as a team out of five schools. Individual awards were also won. Cadet Captain Jennifer Arriola placed 2nd in her age category (13-18) and took home a medal. Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Scott Caldwell placed 1st in his age category, closely followed by Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Federico Dottin who placed second in the same age category.
SLW Centennial’s Athletic Director, Steven Ripley, has been awarded the CMAA Certification. CMAA is the acronym for Certified Master Athletic Administrator. He is now part of a very elite group of Athletic Administrators. Only five percent of all athletic directors in the United States have achieved the CMAA level. His dedication and commitment is impressive. We appreciate what he does for Centennial, the Athletic Department, and the student athletes.
SLW Centennial Law Academy students presented a Mock Trial to over 120 Palm Pointe seventh grade Civics students. This was a collaborative effort between Mrs. Sandra Oliveira, Law Academy Coordinator, and Mrs. Lulkin and Mrs. Cruz, 7th grade Civics teachers, to enhance the learning experience for the seventh graders who are learning about the court system and the trial process.
The Law Academy students prepared and presented the case. The seventh grade students were placed in jury groups to deliberate the outcome. After the presentation, there was a debriefing session where the seventh graders could ask questions of the presenters. This was a great experience that provided the Law Academy students with an opportunity to practice and apply what they have learned in the classroom and an equal opportunity for the seventh graders to observe a mock trial presentation in a courtroom setting.
