The committee annually dedicates a meeting to honoring the cadets and their commanders in order to show its appreciation and support of the local JROTC programs. Retired Col. Tom Boyle, Military Affairs Committee chairman, presented the Cadet of the Year Leadership awards to:

            Also receiving a Cadet of the Year Leadership award, but unable to attend the ceremony was Cadet Lt. Col. Jose Deras and his Program Commander (Ret.) Col. Teresa Townsend, Daleville High School – Army JROTC.


“The Military Affairs Committee is proud to have the opportunity to honor these outstanding students and their commanders,” said Boyle. “Our committee looks forward to recognizing these cadets each year and this is just one avenue this committee takes to meet our goal of enhancing the positive interaction between the Dothan area community, Fort Rucker and the area’s military command and personnel.”


During the presentations, the cadets and their commanders had the opportunity to talk about their involvement in the JROTC program and future plans. All the cadets and commanders expressed their gratitude to the DACC and the Military Affairs Committee for this special recognition.
