Port St. Lucie High Jaguar battalion retires flags

The Port Saint Lucie High School JROTC conducted a Flag Retirement Ceremony as its annual Service Learning Project. The service learning is similar to community service, but the difference between the two is that after the service learning project, a reflection is done. This year, the Jaguar Battalion retired unserviceable flags. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Mark Rendell attended this ceremony, his first ceremony at a retirement of the flags. He was very
impressed at how the ceremony was conducted. It was a beautiful ceremony and it truly was a heart-warming sight to see. All the cadets who participated in this event were honored to be able to be a part of something as wonderful as that
ceremony. P9ictured, from left, cadet Staff Sergeant John Hunter, cadet Private First Class Edwin Oquendo, cadet Private First Class Anson Rivera, and to the far left in the back holding the flag is cadet Staff Sergeant Jaffery Murankus.
