Gallery+Story: EPISD JROTC Fall Drill shows off cadet talent

Cadets from every corner of the District participated in the EPISD JROTC Fall Drill Team Competition at Franklin High School earlier this month, showing their impressive skills and commitment to the program.

The competition consisted of three phases:

  • Inspection, regulation and exhibition for the armed and unarmed units
  • Color guard inspection and performance
  • Exhibition phase on the football field for armed and unarmed teams

Sweepstakes Trophy winner was the JROTC group from El Paso High School. The trophy was accepted by Cadet Battalion Commander Nalia Torres, Cadet Battalion Sgt. Maj. Hunter Spier and Cadet Command Sgt. Maj. Elias Palomares.

Sweepstakes Trophy is for the school that had the highest number of category placement points.

Organizing the event was the JROTC instructors and cadet commanders Sgt. Major Ronald Hall, Col. Leonard Wells and Sgt. Maj. Velton Locklear.
