For the first time since 2019, the JROTC Twilight Parade honored and celebrated our cadets. 

On May 4, the CDH community gathered for this favorite tradition. The Crack Drill team rehearsed their precision rifle routine and the brigade rehearsed their drill and ceremony outside in the cold for a week in preparation for the event and their hard work paid off as they looked sharp and professional in front of a crowd of more than 500 students, parents, administrators, faculty, staff who attended on a beautiful Spring evening. Senior Army Instructor Colonel Joe Scrocca spoke and dozens of students were recognized with awards.
