Smith-Cotton Army JROTC Raider National Championship Team receive a Resolution from the Missouri House of Representatives.

The Smith-Cotton Army JROTC Mixed Raider Team were named the top team in the nation at the United States Army National JROTC Raider Championships held in Molena, Georgia, this past fall.  It is the fifth time in the past six years that the Raider Team has earned the right to be called the best in the nation.  In recognition of their outstanding achievement, Representative Nathan Beard, District 52, wrote and had passed a Missouri House of Representatives Resolution.  The Raider Team was honored on the floor of the House of Representatives in Jefferson City, Missouri, this past Tuesday.
The Resolution reads in part: 
“Whereas, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives hold in high esteem the Show-Me State student competitive teams that bring glory and honor to themselves and to this great Nation through the excellence of their achievements; and Whereas, Smith-Cotton High School in Sedalia, Missouri, sponsors a United States Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program whose members competed at the National JROTC Raider Championship in Molena, Georgia that attracted more than 1,100 cadet participants in 80 teams; and Whereas, the Smith-Cotton mixed-gender Raider Team finished with an overall first at the championship for the fifth time in the past six years.

Now, therefore, be it resolved that we, the members of the Missouri House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth General Assembly, join unanimously to applaud the history, goals, and accomplishments associated with Smith-Cotton JROTC and to convey to all of those involved in this legislative body’s most heartfelt congratulations upon the Raider Team becoming National Champions again.”

Offered by Representatives Nathan Beard, District 52, and certified by John J. Diehl, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Congratulations Raiders! HOOAH!
