Higley AFJROTC brings home drill team awards

ROTC Awards

Higley’s AFJROTC drill team brought home several titles in the last month, including five first-place trophies at the Arizona State Drill Championship Meet, the Desert Classic.

The group, made up of only 12 students from Higley and Williams Field High School in Gilbert, participated in the state meet on April 6, and the Gallegos Drill Competition on March 23. In addition to the trophies below, the group took second place in the overall Grand Champion Sweepstakes at the state championship and first place at the Gallegos Drill Competition.

Congratulations to all the students and kudos to their instructors, Col. Scott Vaughn and SMSgt. Danny Alltop.
