Cadet Staff Sergeant Justice McKeever an Honor Student at Palisades High School ranked top 10 in Medical Math at the HOSA – Future Health Professionals Regional Convention at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, NC. The competition is designed to motivate HOSA members to improve their knowledge and skills in areas of Health and Biomedical Sciences. Cadet McKeever will move on to the State Competition later this spring in Greensboro, N.C., where he strives to improve on his skills and compete on the national level. Cadet McKeever credits his Health Occupations teacher Dr. Kevin Hall for providing him a challenging curriculum to help him excel and his JROTC Instructors MAJ(R) Ervin Purvis and 1SG(R) Harold Smith for motivating him to exceed his expectations. His efforts bring great credit to himself, Palisades High School and the JROTC Program. #PumaPride.
