Spring Valley Students Exemplify Service Above Self

Spring Valley JROTC has established a partnership with Lonnie B Nelson Elementary school in which cadets participate as classroom helpers for assigned teachers. Principals, administrators, teachers, and yes even elementary students welcomed 23 Spring Valley cadets to their school on October 28th. Cadets ranging from 9th - 12th grade helped teachers in their rooms, participated in reading circles, escorted students to special assemblies, and brightened the day of students throughout the school. Cadets each 2nd and 4th Wednesday have chosen to forego the extra sleep afforded them on "late start Wednesday" to encourage young people and represent their School. In fact, almost half of those cadets partnering with the school, chose to mentor young people prior to taking their PSAT exams that morning. Cadets daily recite the Air Force core values of Integrity, Service Before Self, and Excellence in all we do. Partnering  with Lonnie B Nelson elementary school and connecting with young people is just one way Spring Valley students are serving our community.
