Jaguar Battalion cadets earn excellence awards

Port St. Lucie High School’s Jaguar ROTC Battalion hosted its 16thannual award ceremony where various awards were presented to deserving cadets. The awardees are selected based on exceptional JROTC performance and superior physical fitness, but a prerequisite for each award is academic excellence. The entire battalion gathered in the auditorium, anxious to learn who earned one or more of the various awards presented at the ceremony, such as the Sons of the American Revolution award, presented to cadet Captain Alex Seipel. Following the ceremony, the JROTC Booster Club hosted a reception for cadets who received an award and special guests that participated in the ceremony. Pictured, from left, are Jay Wise from The Sons of the American Revolution, St. Lucie River Chapter, and Cadet Seipel.
