Often times people are quick to write a letter to the local paper or social media to express their dissatisfaction over something they are unhappy with, but are not as quick to express their opinion when someone is doing a great job.
I would like to take the opportunity to applaud Alan Reed, Superintendent of Adair County Schools, and the school board on their foresight and hard work on developing an ROTC program for the students in Adair County!
They should be commended for their efforts! This program builds tomorrow's leaders and instills confidence and discipline in a young person.
It's a program that builds skills within a young person whether the student follows a military career or chooses a path in the private sector.
I have witnessed first hand the benefits this program produces.
It also promotes patriotism and encourages our youth to be more productive members of society, and opens doors and creates more opportunities.
The student also develops skills and upon graduation is more work ready with the training they received throughout the ROTC program.
Mr Reed's efforts should not go unnoticed, and he should be recognized for being proactive in providing this program for the youth; Mr. Reed along with the school board, have demonstrated how much they care about our youth, in taking the necessary steps and hard work in initiating this program.
The community needs to rally around Mr. Reed and fully offer their support!
Again, I have seen the results of a successful ROTC program, and it is one of the most valuable programs a School/Community can have.
The folks of Adair County are lucky to have a Superintendent like Mr. Reed!
Sir (Mr. Reed), the Russell County HonorGuard applauds your foresight, and for providing programs such as the ROTC Program that will build tomorrow's leaders!
Our children are our future and we must invest in every possible way!
Commander, Russell County Honor Guard
