A quote from Lt Col Steven Rakel, FHS ROTC Senior Aerospace Science Instructor (SASI).
“This may have been the finest week in the 17 year history of our FHS ROTC program! These 17 outstanding cadets have proven by participating with distinction in three different leadership courses across the nation, that they indeed are among the Best of the Best, and we are all very proud of them”.
