Honoring Excellence and Leadership

Today, I was honored to present a Senate Citation to Gloucester High School Senior Soo Ae Ono, a Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps cadet, who was awarded the Region 1 Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Achievement this morning at a ceremony in the school’s Benjamin A. Smith Field House. The Legion of Valor Bronze Cross is awarded to the top JROTC cadet in a region that spans from Maine to the Virginia-North Carolina line.  She is an inspirational student, who not only leads as a commander in the JROTC program but is also the President of the National Honor Society. You can read a great article about her in the Gloucester Daily Times here:

Congratulations also to Marine Corps. gunner Rick Muth, who directs the JROTC program at GH, who does an outstanding job of working with the students to achieve excellence.
