Cocoa among first high schools in Brevard County to set up a JROTC program in August of 1969
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – The Good Deeds Foundation of the Military Officers Association of America, Cape Canaveral Chapter continues its outreach to JROTC and other youth programs.
Good Deeds President CPT Donn Weaver and Col. Steve Bond presented the Cocoa High School JROTC program with $600 and a new Tiger Battalion sign to Lt. Col. Joe Pavone, JROTC Commander, and his leadership team.
The check was part of $10,400 given by MOAACC to every JROTC, Sea Cadet and Civil Air Patrol Unit in Brevard County.
The sign replaced one built in 1970 which had worn out.
Cocoa was among the first high schools in Brevard County to set up a JROTC program in August of 1969.
At a special faculty meeting, another MOAACC Program was presented to all 120 teachers at the high school.
They received handouts and other information about the Vets Back to Class/Joe Foss Institute outreach program, which sends 17 VBC/JFI veterans into classrooms to cover many topics during the school year.
The Cocoa High briefing opportunity was a first for an entire school and MOAACC officials hope to receive many requests for veterans to talk to students during the school year.
Reaching our youth, along with veterans in need and active duty units, are the pillars of MOAACC’s GDF programs. Enabled by generous donations, MOAACC is making a big difference in our community.
