Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC) cadets from several Williamson County high schools spent their Thanksgiving break greeting veterans as they arrived for the Tennessee Military Collectors Association (TMCA) event November 24.

“The cadets set up display items in the lobby and explained the many core curriculum and extra-curricular programs in JROTC to attendees,” said Page High JROTC instructor Col. Eric Golowsky. “Many veterans stopped to discuss the different uniform changes from their service days and share their experiences with these future leaders of America.”

Cadets from Centennial, Independence, Page and Ravenwood high schools served as ambassadors. In recognition, each school’s program received $250 from the TMCA.

“The members of TMCA are proud to recognize and support the JROTC programs,” said TMCA president Jimmy Howell. “Students participating in JROTC learn much about teamwork, service to others and love of country. It’s always a pleasure to see them at our events and activities; we’re hopeful our financial contributions will benefit their educational experience.”
