FWISD TO PARTICIPATE IN ARMED FORCES BOWL
Fort Worth, TX (November 16, 2012) – Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Walter Dansby announced today that the District’s JROTC/Junior Cadet Corps (JCC) would be taking a significant role in activities accompanying the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. The Bowl will be held on Saturday, December 29, 2012 at TCU’s Amon Carter Stadium.
A combined service JROTC Color Guard will present the colors during the annual Armed Forces Bowl luncheon held on the day preceding the game. On game day, students will be distributing Fort Worth ISD materials at a District display in the activities area. Other students will be on hand to welcome fans and distribute programs. A Fort Worth ISD JROTC drill team will perform on the field immediately prior to the entrance of the teams. Uniformed JROTC/JCC students will have special reserved seating in the stands. And a special video featuring the Fort Worth ISD Gold Seal Programs of Choice will be shown on the big stadium screen during the game itself.
“Our participation in the Armed Forces Bowl celebration is yet another example of how we are continuing our drive toward a Singleness of Purpose,” said Superintendent Dansby. “We are part of the fabric of our greater community and it is important to use major events like this to tell our story.”
JROTC offers an outstanding elective course for young men and women that emphasizes leadership development, self-discipline and responsible patriotic citizenship. JCC offers 6th, 7th and 8th grade students lessons in professional courtesy, respect, discipline and basic leadership traits preparing them for the transition to high school.
Gold Seal Programs and Schools of Choice offer students a learning experience that engages them, supports their personal interests and opens pathways to success. It is the power to take ownership in the education experience. And it is the power that comes with being engaged in learning and excited about the future.
