After doing over 800 hours of community service over the summer, the cadets of the Michigan City High School (MCHS) Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC) did not break stride as they continued to support the school district and community. The Color Guard presented the American and Marine Corps flags as Choir Director Mrs. Michelle Howisen sang the National Anthem preceding Superintendent Dr. Barbara Eason-Watkins address to Michigan City Area Schools (MCAS) staff to start the school year. The following day, cadets assisted the MCHS staff and incoming freshman for the Freshmen Orientation. The first Friday of the school year opened the football season, so the Color Guard presented the colors as the MCHS band played the National Anthem. Cadets supported a Veterans Jamboree at Fox Park on August 26. The cadets will continue to support numerous MCHS events throughout the September. These include the MCHS Open House on September 6, all home football games to include Homecoming on September 15, and the Veteran of the Year Dinner in LaPorte on Sunday, September 10. The cadets’ first competition will be the Raider Challenge at Hobart High School on October 14.
