More than 30 students involved in Magruder High School’s Army Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (JROTC) program came out to the first-ever Eagle Battalion Charity Golf Event at Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville on Wednesday.
The event was organized by the Eagle Battalion Booster Club, a nonprofit that raises money for the Army JROTC program. Before the golfing began, the JROTC cadets performed a color guard presentation that included a tribute to four alumni from the program who died in action.
MyMCMedia attended the festivities and talked to Lt. Colonel Eric Atherton, the senior instructor of the Magruder Army JROTC program; Dana Noga-Grubb, president of the JROTC Eagle Battalion Booster Club; as well as three of Magruder’s JROTC cadets: freshman Mikayla Ralston, junior Freddy Aguilar, and senior Gabriela Munson (also the program’s Battalion Commander).
Here’s a look at the event:
