Cadets Role Play During Cobb County Mass Casualty Exercise at Sun Trust Stadium

The North Cobb-Harrison cadets were used as role players at Sun Trust Park Tuesday, 6 November 2018. Cobb County Police, Sheriff’s Department, and Emergency Response teams simulated emergency situations at the stadium during their annual training. Some of the cadets were painted with make up to resemble injuries such as burns, lacerations, and gunshot wounds, and would be treated (notionally) during multiple scenarios. The cadets were able to be exposed to and participate in scenarios that could occur in real life. Their adrenaline was pumping and their hearts were racing. The cadets had an exciting experience.  In addition, they were able to relax in two of the VIP box suits throughout the evening, giving way to a beautiful view of the New Atlanta Braves Stadium.

***1st Place***

The North Cobb-Harrison NJROTC Unit Nearly Sweeps Luella Drill Meet

The North Cobb-Harrison NJROTC Drill Team placed 1st Overall at their most recent drill meet, held at Luella High School, McDonough, Georgia 20 October, 2018. Overcoming at times torrential down pour rain, the team displayed a level of focus and determination, propelling them to record winning results. Out of 12 high schools, the team placed 1st in 9 of 11 events; a near sweep! The Drill Teams next sanctioned competition is scheduled for 8 December at Martin Luther King Jr. High School. The record breaking performance automatically qualifies the drill team (lead by this year’s Commanding Officer, Cadet Jacob Chmelecki), for the Area-12 Championship scheduled for 2 March 2019, setting their sights again on the 2019 Navy Nationals with hopefully a qualifying 1st place winning performance this year. This could be the year!
