One Haymarket student is competing in a statewide event.
The Colonel William Grayson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) has nominated Jeffrey Lazar from Battlefield High School for the enhanced JROTC competition.
Lazar received a bronze medallion, a certificate, and a check at a meeting on March 14, according to a release from the Col. William Grayson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.
The winner of the state competition — which is run by the Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution — will compete in the National Outstanding JROTC Recognition program.
An award is going to be given to the national program winner at the SAR National Congress.
Being in the top 25 percent of the academic class and top 10 percent of the JROTC class are required for those participating in the competition.
Cadets must write an essay about “How JROTC has prepared me to be a better citizen of the United States of America” and send in a recommendation letter from the Senior Military Instructor, as well.
Descendants of Revolutionary War soldiers, sailors, patriots, suppliers, medical aid providers, and those who signed Faith and Fidelity oaths may become members of the SAR.
Applicants needing assistance may email the Col. William Grayson Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution Registrar Michael Blythe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
