Annual MCJROTC Change of Command Ceremony held in the Benson Arena
The MCJROTC year-end annual change of command ceremony had a much-anticipated move this year to the Gayle & Tom Benson Arena on Wednesday, April 24. The spacious arena allowed for a more comprehensive ceremony including a parade of the entire battalion to honor their graduating senior cadets and the newly appointed cadets who will assume their posts.
After enjoying the musical talents of the MJROTC band, family and friends watched with pride as Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Dylan Blady assumed command from Cadet Lieutenant Colonel August Huete. After the official change of command, 21 cadets were also honored with various awards and commendations.
The ceremony was followed by a reception in the Commons hosted by the MCJROTC Booster Club.
