DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- JROTC cadets across the Wiregrass were recognized for their outstanding leadership.

The Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs committee hosts an awards ceremony each year to do so.

Four students from four different high schools received awards and shared their plans for life after graduation.

“Since I’m already enlisted in the army reserve, I'm going to go to basic training first and then I’m going to come back and go to Marion Military Institute,” says Dothan High School’s JROTC Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Yasmine Hall.

“I am hoping to get into the naval academy when I graduate and I’m hoping to major in cybersecurity,” says Rehobeth High School’s JROTC Cadet Commander Samantha Stricker.

“I plan to pursue an ROTC career joining any type of university I find that offers such program and from there join as a second lieutenant in the army,” says Carroll High School’s JROTC Cadet Major Matthew Braswell.

A student from Daleville High School’s JROTC was also recognized but was not able to attend.
