Cobb County JROTC Cadets Honored at Pass in Review
Campbell High School students Cadet Pfc. Jacob Parcel and Cadet Second Lt. John Beasely were among those awarded at the ceremony. Parcel received the Superintendent's Award and Beasley received the Military Officers Association Award.
More than 700 Cadets from nearly all Cobb County and Marietta high city schools participated in the ceremony. Maj. Larry Moyers, the host school’s JROTC instructor, explained that the purpose of a pass in review is to honor the accomplishments of the cadets and the military itself.
“It’s a ceremony that’s used to recognize individuals for accomplishments or for a guest commander to review the troops and see what they look like,” he said. “So it’s kind of a combination in honors.”
Two students from each school were honored with either the Superintendent’s Award of the Military Officers Association Award. Cadet Pfc. Jacob Parcel and Cadet Second Lt. John Beasley were the honorees from Campbell High School.
Dr. Michael Hinojosa, Cobb County Schools superintendent, Dr. Emily Lembeck, Marietta City Schools superintendent, and Lt. Gen. Joseph Redden reviewed the cadets.
