JROTC cadets and their guests dressed in formal attire for a "positive" night to remember on Friday for the 25th JROTC Military Ball.

Before the night began Alice Mayor Jolene Vanover read a proclamation to the JROTC cadets. She explained how the cadets are making a positive impact on their lives and the school district.

Sgt. Mary Lane and her high ranking cadets kicked off the night with the Chicken Dance, an icebreaker for attendees who danced the night away to all genres of music.

Keeping with tradition the oldest member of the JROTC, Cadet Colonel Albert Taboada, and the youngest member of the organization, Robin Gee, took part in the cutting of the cake.

Together Taboada and Gee held the JROTC sword and sliced through the middle of the two cakes before the crowd of students.

JROTC objectives are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character, self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.
