Annual event held Saturday at Prairie High School
BATTLE GROUND — Battle Ground Public Schools’ Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) held its annual Pass in Review on Saturday morning at Prairie High School. AFJROTC cadets from both Battle Ground and Prairie high schools lined up in formation; marched for review in front of commanding officers, school board members, administrators and guests; received awards and completed a change of command.
Pass in Review is a long-standing military tradition that began as a way for the newly assigned commander to inspect troops. The district uses this tradition to celebrate student accomplishments and dedication to the AFJROTC program. Superintendent Mark Ross congratulated the cadets on their success. The event also highlights the change of command for each Corps unit. Battle Ground’s Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Adriana Esparza relinquished command and Cadet Major Rylee Petersen assumed command. Prairie’s Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Chris Flynn relinquished command and Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Heather Lee assumed command.
The AFJROTC program is a part of the district’s Career and Technical Education Department.
