Public Affairs Officer, MVHS Warrior Battalion

If you’ve seen her fly high above Minisink’s main campus, that’s thanks to a partnership between period-1 JROTC cadets and students in the BOCES program.

For the second consecutive year, every Friday they have gathered around the flagpole, next to the high school’s main entrance, to raise and fly the American flag for the school community. This collaboration promotes teamwork and trust among involved students, and helps develop a sense of national pride and citizenship.
