Northview NJROTC Places In Escarosa Area 8 Drill Meet

November 23, 2020

The Northview High School NJROTC took part in the Escarosa Area 8 Drill Meet in Milton  over the weekend.

Northview received third place trophies in unarmed basic drill, unarmed exhibition drill, color guard and the 16×100 relay.

“This was the first meet for nearly half of our cadets,” Chief Jeffrey Simpkins said.  ”Not a bad day for our first time out this year, especially in a field loaded with four former Navy National champions.”

    As a retired MCPO, I taught NJROTC for 20 years and know the dedication it takes to accomplish this. CONGRATS!

    So proud of the cadets and their leadership team. NJROTC rarely gets the recognition that they deserve and I applaud for covering this. Go Chiefs!
