JROTC Cadets “Forge” Ahead

Each year, the San Diego chapter of the Military Order of World Wars (MOWW) sponsors eight cadets from various JROTC programs throughout San Diego to attend the Freedoms Foundation Valley Forge Leadership Conference. Our cadets this year include Samantha Nguyen (Mira Mesa High), Jennifer Tu Doan (Patrick Henry High), Christopher Reyes and Darius Pinckney (Mission Bay High), Bryan Salinas and Jenny Chan (Scripps Ranch High), Joanna Ibay (Morse High) and Thang Hin (Madison High). Each student ranks among the top two cadets in their JROTC junior class and displays strong academic, citizenship and leadership traits.

The three-day conference begins in historic Valley Forge, PA and concludes in Washington DC. Students will interact with experts on citizenship, democracy, the free enterprise system, the judicial system and the American political process.
