NJROTC Poise and Precision Earns Praise

Members of the high school’s Navy Junior ROTC demonstrated their discipline at the annual Inspection and Battalion Parade before their families, the district Board of Education, administrators, Village of Freeport trustees and local war veterans.

The program’s 256 students performed their drills accurately and in synchronization en route to passing their inspection, which was conducted by NJROTC Area Four Manager and Retired United States Navy Commander Jimmie Miller. Board of Education President Michael Pomerico and Freeport High School Principal Linda Carter each told the cadets and their leaders how proud they should be for showcasing such stellar skills and composure, and encouraged them to continue developing their leadership skills. They also praised Senior Naval Science Instructor Major Donald Moore, Jr. and Naval Science Instructor Chief Timothy McShan for their unwavering dedication to the school’s NJROTC program and its members.
The inspection and parade served as a forum to celebrate the hard work of the members and staff of Freeport High School’s NJROTC program.
