Cadet LTC. Grant Lloyd Accepted to the Citadel Military Academy and awarded the Army ROTC scholarship:
Elkin High School JROTC Cadet LTC. Grant Lloyd, the son of Jimmy and Pam Lloyd of Elkin, was recently accepted to the Citadel Military Academy in Charleston, South Carolina. Lloyd also was awarded the Army ROTC scholarship, valued at around $80,000.
Lloyd has attended Elkin City Schools since kindergarten, but was not really sure about his chosen career until his sophomore year of high school when he enrolled in the JROTC program at Elkin High School. He soon began to consider a career in the military.
In his junior year, Lloyd became Raider team leader and called commands as a leader for the drill team. He then became the battalion’s executive officer. As a senior, Lloyd took over as the battalion commander of Elkin High School’s JROTC program, and has served well as the highest ranking cadet in JROTC at the school.
Lloyd will begin courses at the Citadel in the fall of 2016, majoring in engineering. Upon graduation, he will be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
Congratulations to Cadet LTC. Grant Lloyd for a job well done!
