Battle Ground High School senior Jameson Harpe has been awarded the Sons of The American Revolution Bronze Medal and Certificate for his outstanding accomplishments while a member of the school’s Air Force JROTC program. The award was presented by the Ft. Vancouver Chapter of The Sons of The American Revolution.
One cadet from each area high school having a JROTC program is selected for the award annually based upon their accomplishments in their school and community. Jameson, who is the son of Eric and Diane Harpe of Battle Ground, also attends Cascadia Tech Academy where he is studying Diesel Technology.
Cadet Captain Harpe has served as a flight commander for the AFJROTC program and competes with his unit’s Air Rifle team. This past year he qualified for The Junior Olympics for air rifle competition.
“It’s our privilege to recognize Jameson’s strong commitment to his JROTC program and the leadership qualities he has displayed,” says William Gueringer, Ft. Vancouver SAR Chapter JROTC Chair. “He’s served in several leadership positions of increasing responsibility and he represents his school well within the community.”
Harpe is also a member of his school’s Jazz Band and Pep Band, and after graduation he has his sights set on attending Clark College and possibly joining the National Guard to continue his training in Diesel Technology.
