MOBILE, AL -- In Mobile County, rappelling is one of the key training highlights of a JROTC cadet’s experience! In order to offer this training, JROTC cadre must undergo rigorous training to maintain Rappel Master certifications. This past Fall’s training at Fort Benning, Georgia, Mobile County Public Schools were represented by Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) Robert Barrow and First Sergeant (Ret) Timothy Wright. LTC Barrow is the Director of Army Instruction for the district and 1SG Wright is an Army Instructor at Rain High School. They had to demonstrate proficiency at rigging the tower and proper rappel techniques off the 65 foot rappel tower. It takes years of experience to become a certified Rappel Master and our district is lucky to have five qualified instructors able to conduct this type of training.
