The Mobile County JROTC programs participated in the 16th Annual Ski Trip & Staff Ride to Gatlinburg and Chattanooga, Tennessee from 13-16 February 2018. Cadets from across the district had a great time learning how to conquer the slopes at Ober Gatlinburg…many for the first time! Cadets also learned about the famous Civil War Battle of Chattanooga during the War Between the States from 1861-1865. Over 100 students took the annual trek by bus to Tennessee with 20 parents and cadre members present to chaperone.
