ROXBORO, NC -- The Person High School JROTC program recently conducted the first annual Rocket Tree Toy drive for the Person County elementary schools. The JROTC Collected over 100 toys over a two-month period from Teachers, JROTC Cadets, PERSON HS Teachers and Staff, students, parents and the Person High School DTL. There were a total of seven elementary schools and over 80 students that received gifts.

Cadets within the PERSON HS JROTC program including Cadet LTC Karson Evans led by example by planning, coordinating and delivering gifts to the schools.

Cadet LTC Evans traveled over 75 miles driving to each school to personally deliver the toys to the Students.

We are blessed to be able to give back during these challenging times.
