The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) is a congressional mandated program that focuses on the youth-oriented mission “Motivating Young People to be Better Citizens”. It is one of the largest youth programs in the world with more than 310,000 high school students participating annually while enrolled in over 1,700 secondary educational programs and encompasses a myriad of teaching goals focused on leadership, teamwork, character education, personal responsibility, a sense of accomplishment and service to the nation. Two of the most important assets for JROTC are the Cadets/students and the nearly 4,000 instructors who lead, guide and mentor their Cadets. JROTC produces leaders through developing the mind and the body. Channelview High School JROTC program is partially funded by the Channelview Independent School District and the United States Army, but the program still needs to raise additional funds for supplies, competitions and other events for the upcoming school year. Commanded by Bro. Willie Haigler of Rho Xi Chapter, the Channelview High School JROTC program held their 22nd Annual Military Ball at the DoubleTree Hotel in Houston, TX on Saturday, March 4, 2017. The Military Ball serves as the JROTC program’s largest fundraising event. The Brothers of Rho Xi Chapter donated $250 to the Channelview JROTC Military Ball where Bro. Haigler also presented as the keynote speaker.
