Congratulations to members of the Bryant High School JROTC JLAB Team who participated in the third round of the JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl (JLAB) hosted by the College Options Foundation that took place in Washington D.C. from 24-28 June 2016.
One of only 40 Army JROTC teams selected across the nation to compete in the Leadership portion of the competition, the team representing the “Hurricane Battalion” beat out well over a thousand other teams across the nation and overseas military installations!
Led by Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Gary Vrazel (who retired from the district this summer), the Senior Army Instructor at Bryant, this team has done exceptionally well through the first two levels of the competition. Colonel Vrazel, stated, “This group of cadets represent some of the finest studetns I have ever had the pleasure of teaching since joining the Mobile County Public School System.” The Hurricanes pictured below are: led by Cadet Patricia West, Thomas Le, Brittany Pierce, and Joseph Kelley. The two alternate team members are Jacob Johnson and Amanda Wilson. Students also go the chance to see our nation’s capital up close and personal.
