RCHS NJROTC visits Fair Oaks
In Nov. 27 Issue
Russell County News

With Russell County High School's Naval Junior Officer Training Corps numbers growing, Senior Chief Steven Kinder has pushed for his cadets to get more involved in the community.

Thirteen of Kinder's students did that on Saturday as they visited residents at Fair Oaks Nursing Home in Jamestown for the first time.

Kinder said he hopes to bring a NJROTC group to Fair Oaks each month to visit the residents and become more involved in their community through outreach such as this.

Many of the cadets said this was the first time they had ever visited the facility, saying many of the residents nearly moved them to tears, thanking them for coming to visit.

"That is what this is all about," Kinder said. "We want them to experience this and appreciate those community leaders that have gone before them."

Kinder said with NJROTC numbers continuing to grow, trips like this will impact more students and people out in the community.

Freshman Breanna Bloyd said she never thought taking a visit such as this would have such a profound impact on her life. She said just visiting and speaking with the residents she noticed how enthused and excited they were about their young visitors.

"I just like to see them smile," Bloyd said. "Many of them don't get a lot of visitors so I'm glad I could do my part."

Freshman Kayla Reece echoed those sentiments, saying that the trip was an eye opener to her and her fellow cadets.

Senior CO Tequila Antle said she hopes the NJROTC can work out something to where the trips to Fair Oaks become more than just a once-a-month venture.

Kinder said he hopes his students take the trips to heart and receive something out of them.

In doing that, they will learn important life lessons and information from their elders, he said.

He said the NJROTC has 68 freshmen and sophomores this year alone. There are close to 80 total members with numbers expected to push the 100 mark next school year.
