Daleville JROTC's Beckham to Compete in Paralympic World Cup

By  | 

DALEVILLE -- Daleville High's Warhawks Battalion is sending another member of the team to a national competition.

Junior cadet Mariah Beckham found out this week that she will compete in the Paralympic World Cup on June 7, 2014 in Fort Benning, Ga.

Beckham said she could not have accomplished this honor on her own.

"If it wasn't for Colonel and Mr. Gutherie helping and supporting me through all of this, I probably wouldn't be doing any of this," Beckham said. "And with the help of my friends and teammates, I'm really excited."

There are some costs to the Daleville High JROTC, and to Beckham's family. If anyone would like to donate to the cadet, donors can contribute at http://hs.daleville.k12.al.us and click on the MidwayUSA Foundation icon.
