Nease NJROTC hosted its National Military Signing Day for its graduating seniors receiving appointments to the Unites States Service Academies or full ROTC scholarships at public universities on April 24.
Six cadets signed letters of intent during a formal ceremony held on campus and attended by family, teachers and classmates. The six cadets included: Preston Ashley of St. Augustine, who received a full Marine Corps ROTC scholarship to attend Embry-Riddle University; Scott Cummings of St. Johns, who received a full Navy ROTC scholarship to attend Boston University; Mackenzie Davis of St. Johns, who received a full Navy ROTC scholarship to attend the University of South Florida; Jesse Gatewood of Ponte Vedra Beach, who received a full Navy ROTC scholarship to attend Embry Riddle University; Constance Oswald of St. Augustine, who received an appointment to attend the United States Air Force Academy; and Cole Rambo of Ponte Vedra Beach, who received a full Army ROTC scholarship to attend Purdue University.
“These young men and women represent the absolute finest ideals in America’s youth,” said Captain Scott LaRochelle, Nease’s senior naval science instructor. “I could not be more proud of them and their achievements. They earned it.”
Nease NJROTC has been the top-rated NJROTC program in Area-12 (northern Florida and the State of Georgia) for five of the past six years.
