The Port St. Lucie High School Army JROTC hosted the Annual PSL Raider challenge on Saturday, October 9th. Ten schools throughout St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee, and Palm Beach counties competed. The Raider competition consisted of six events: a 2.5 mile run, 1 mile litter carry, HUMVEE push, fitness test with carrying sandbags, constructing and crossing a rope bridge, and tire flip. The Jaguar Battalion male and female teams placed 1st overall. Congrats to a job well done as they compete next week at South Fork High School.
On Saturday, September 11th, the Port St. Lucie High School JROTC Jaguar Battalion participated in the “Do You Give A Ruck?” event. This honor guard’s purpose was to remember the victims of 9/11 and to ensure their voices are still heard. The PSLHS JROTC cadets assisted in the setup, marched a mile in remembrance, and helped the vendors tear down at the end. It was a great success for a worthy cause.
On Wednesday, October 6th, chosen cadets of the Port Saint Lucie Jaguar Battalion participated in the Outstanding Cadet Board (OCB). Two cadets from each company, a Let 1 and a Let 2/3, competed against each other on the OCB. They are also awarded points for proficiency on what they have learned in the program. Although every individual may not qualify for the outstanding cadet, all participants are awarded and recognized for their participation. This is done through promotion in rank and uniform decorations. For this semester’s board, our Let 1 winner was Cadet Private First Class Christian Garcia as well
On Wednesday, September 8th, Port St. Lucie High School Jaguar Battalion conducted their first Blood Drive of the year. The Blood Drive ran smoothly, and we are thankful to have had the opportunity to benefit the community. Thanks to the JROTC Cadets, faculty, and members of OneBlood, we were able to donate enough blood to save over 150+ lives.
