On Friday, December 2nd, the Greenbrier West JROTC program hosted their 22nd Annual Military Ball in the West Commons Area. The event’s turnout is credited to months of planning on part of the unit’s entirely student-run staff, and, by most accounts, was a rousing success.

“I had a great time at the ball,” Alpha Company Commander Drake Dunn remarked, “The decorations, music, and the food were all spectacular. This took a lot of planning and preparation but it was all worth it.”

The ball began at six o’clock in the evening, beginning with a lineup of the two companies, Alpha and Bravo. The cadets then entered the cafeteria, where they shook the hands of each staff member and their dates, and received a glass of punch. After all the cadets were seated, remarks were made by the Battalion Commander of the Fayette Institute of Technology, as well as the Operations and Training Officer. The staff  then proposed toasts to figures such as the President and Secretary of Defense.

With the formalities out of the way, guests were served to a fantastic meal prepared by Cavalier Culinary. The rest of the night was spent on the dance floor listening to timeless hits such as YMCA, Cha-Cha Slide, and Macarena, and participating in the newly trending Mannequin Challenge.

A formal event is a required part of the JROTC curriculum and there is no doubt that they passed with flying colors. The event was primarily spearheaded by Battalion Commander Amber Clark and Executive Officer Kaitlin Legg, the leadership of the battalion, and it cannot be understated that they worked strenuously to make this event a success. Thanks to them, many students had a ball (pun intended) and may look back on this one day as one of JROTC’s more successful endeavors.
