    Staff Ride

MOBILE, AL -- JROTC Cadets from across Mobile County participated in the 19th Annual Cadet Staff Ride / Ski Trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee where they honed their skills on the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort! In addition, cadets learned about the challenges faced by soldiers during the Civil War and the Battle of Chattanooga in 1863. This fun-filled and educational trip is something the students look forward to every year. Cadets were thrilled to be able to participate this year while practicing safe COVID protocols. The trip was hosted by the Boy Scouts of America Venture Crew 6914! The majority of the students had never seen snow in person much less see the beautiful scenery associated with the Great Smokey Mountains!
