Cadets celebrate new honor

October 25, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- Thomasville High School's ROTC is celebrating a new accolade.

It has won third place in the unarmed color guard division at the Lowndes High School Air Force Junior ROTC drill meet. Sixteen teams from across the region attended the event. It's the first time in at least four years Thomasville High's ROTC has won such an award.

First Lieutenant Ebony Fisher says her team couldn't be prouder. "It's a real honor because we got to meet other people who do the same thing we do, and they're our age. And we got to meet other drill team commanders and other color guard commanders, so I love being in ROTC," says Fisher.

If the team acrues enough points, it could be invited to the national drill competition in Daytona Beach, Florida this spring. About 745 schools nationwide will participate.
