MOAA-CC honors Army JROTC scholarship earners
Viera High School senior Army instructor retired Lt. Col. Tim Thomas turned the tables when it came time to introduce his JROTC scholarship earners at the May 19 Military Officers Association of America Cape Canaveral Chapter luncheon at Indian River Colony Club.
He handed the microphone to his cadets so they could introduce their parents.
“Their parents are why they are here. They set high expectations of them and gave them the support for them to achieve those goals. This is why we have the strong U.S. military that we enjoy. It starts there,” Thomas said.
He also thanked MOAA members for all the support they provide all of the JROTC programs across Brevard County.
“We couldn’t do what we do without the help of MOAA.”
VHS scholarship earners honored were Ricky Cupoli, whose Army ROTC scholarship will send him to Stetson University, Matthew Baker to the University of North Georgia, Melik Sava to the University of Central Florida and Jazmin Rice to Mary Baldwin University.
