New River Chapter Award Presentation to ACHS JROTC Students
May 15, 2020
The New River Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) recently provided awards to two deserving Junior ROTC students at Ashe County High School. A certificate and a $1000 Rear Admiral Scott L. Sears, USN scholarship was awarded to Cadet Battalion S1 Bethany Bare. The MOAA Leadership Award with medal was awarded to Caded 2LT Jernee Ashley. Due to the unforeseen complications with the COVID-19 crisis, the Chapter was unable to make the award presentations to the students at the normally hosted ceremonies at the high school. The accompanying photographs were provided for posting on the New River Chapter website and published in our "New River Current" quarterly newsletter and show ACHS JROTC Senior Instructor LTC(R) David Hollis sharing the awards with Cadets Bare and Ashley.
