JROTC Service Learning Project
Beech Grove High School JROTC conducted their first service learning project on September 28. The service learning project was a blood drive with the American Red Cross. The JROTC Cadets were given the task of organizing, getting commitments from donors and running the blood drive. This effort was led by the Battalion Executive Officer Cadet Major Hannah Howard and Special Project Officer Cadet 1st Lieutenant Raven Shipley assisted by the rest of the cadet staff and several other cadets. The project was a great success with the collection of 60 pints of blood. These 60 pints of blood can save up to 180 lives. GREAT JOB, CADETS!! We're Hornet Proud!
Good luck, Marching Hornets!
