NJROTC announces Leadership Change

Published: Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 09:13 AM.

On Thursday, April 24, at 4 Bells into the 2nd Dog Watch, Port St Joe Naval Junior ROTC conducted a Change of Command in front of the entire Company of Cadets and approximately 100 parents and guests. The burden of cadet leadership was passed from LCDR Robert Dykes, who has held the reins for the past year and will be graduating in May, to LCDR Megan Hubbard, a rising senior who accepted the responsibility, having served as the Company’s Executive Officer. This time honored military tradition is carried out throughout the military not only as a symbol of change in leaders but as an assurance of leadership continuity.

After the ceremonial portion of the evening was completed, Out Of Command Awards were presented to deserving cadets who have demonstrated the ability to go above and beyond throughout the year. The following organizations provided awards to recognize outstanding cadet performance.
