North JROTC Making A Difference in the Community

Posted by Community Relations Department on 1/18/2012

The North High JROTC program is making a difference in the community.  They recently spent the weekend cleaning up the alleys in the area of 19th Street and McDowell, removing graffiti, trash and discarded items.  The Coronado Neighborhood was very grateful for the cadets’ help.   JROTC Instructors Lieutenant Commander James Gallagher and Sergeant Major Dennis Torres work with their students to orchestrate a wide variety of community events.  

"This is huge for us," said Christina Henry, who helped form the Coronado East Fight Back neighborhood group. "People think we don't care about the community, but this shows the people who live here do care.
