Floyd Central NJROTC helps tornado victims in Pekin
Friday March 23, 2012
Tags: Misc 


Floyd Central Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) was all set to go on a Field Trip to Fort Knox today, however, the March 2ndtornado that ripped through Pekin and Henryville changed those plans.  Instead, one hundred Cadets, led by Cadet Marissa Samons performed an impromptu community service project to help clear a 40 acre cornfield in Pekin for planting season.

Lt. Col. Ben Gipe, USMC (Ret.) lined up the opportunity with local emergency relief officials and offered the Cadet power.  Cadets picked so much small debris they filled 15 large trash bags, and then began making piles of debris.  The farmer was very appreciative that he could now plant his acreage. 
 

“This is all part of letting the Cadets experience helping the community and putting into practice our core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment,” said Colonel Gipe
