The 103rd Annual JROTC Tournament and Review is not just a night to honor the underclassmen, promote the juniors, or name the new Battalion Commander. However, it is the final night for the seniors. All of their hardwork and accomplishments acculminate to this one night.
During the evening, the Concordia JROTC Snap Squad, IDR, and CO-ED Drill teams preformed for the parents. They also had an obsicle course, with many different contenders, such as the Powerpuff girls, Captain America, a Peanut M&M, and a T-Rex. After a fierce competition, the Powerpuff Girls manage to pull out a victory.
After the fun was over, everyone moved into the auditorium where a video was played in rememberance of everything that happened throughout the year. Seniors were given their final promotions and awards, while freshman were getting their first. It was a night filled with laughs, cheers, happiness, and tears of joy.
At the end of this night, it was finally time to name the Battalion Commander for the 2017-2018 school year. As the juniors got their promotions, and list of potential commanders dwindled; it was finally clear. The Battalion Commander for the 2017-2018 school year is: Gavin Seiert.
