Annual Awards Ceremony Alert
THE "GUNG HO" AWARD
Cadet Master Chief Petty Officer Glenn is a senior in the North Cobb Harrison Unit. This afternoon she received the "Gung Ho" award by First Sergeant Dickerson. This award is giving to an individual who has motivation and eagerness. The phrase "Gung Ho" is a United States Marine Corps abbreviation for the Mandarin Gongye Hezhoushe which means "to work together." Cadet Glenn was a part of the Drill Team and was on EVERY routine which consisted of the unarmed exhibition, armed exhibition, unarmed basic, armed basic, and color guard. She never once complained about being on every routine instead she enjoyed and embraced the fact that she could be a key component. Master Chief is one of the units best leaders because she is reliable and will do anything you need her to. She is not afraid of a challenge and will do any task to the best of her ability with a positive attitude. We appreciate your hard work and dedication! Congratulations on this outstanding award!
Congratulations Ensign Birchler, USN "Bravo Zulu"!!!

They were mentally and physically exhausted by the end of the week but learned useful knowledge. Cadets Miranda and Fowler were Platoon Commanders for their platoons, cadet Ritter was Guidon and cadet Dorsinvil was 2nd squad leader, his platoon also received Honor Platoon on graduation day. Cadet Suttles was a part of the Color Guard and cadet Groves was Alpha Company Commander. Amazing Job cadets.
Cadets Attend Georgia Orienteering Advanced Training Camp
Four cadets on the Orienteering Team were sent to the Georgia Orienteering Advanced Training Camp at Hard Labor Creek Park in Rutledge, GA for the first time in North Cobb- Harrison NJROTC history. From June 2-7 John Huffman, Joseph Prinzi, Matheus Lago, and Ethan McKinster learned tips and tricks about orienteering and were able to improve their skills and come back with more knowledge to share with the Orienteering team. G.O.A.T Camp was a week that was mentally and physically straining. On their first day they had to run a 5k in 28 minutes or less and pass an Academic Test with an 80 or higher. Their practices consisted of rigorous courses, training exercises, and using maps that were blanked out only showing the contour lines and their control points. These maps are considered an equivalent to a red course, which is the highest course offered in orienteering. On their final day they had to run a designated orienteering course based on the platoon they were assigned due to their performance at camp. All cadets did amazingly. Matheus Lago finished in First place on the green course with a total of 83 minutes. Cadet Prinzi placed first on " Memory-O Course" and the "Follow John Course." Lastly cadet Huffman placed firston the "Postage Stamp Course." Although it was a challenging week they were able to socialize, acquire new skills, and knowledge. Way to make us proud cadets!
