I would like to welcome you and your student to Mandeville High Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC). With your help I'm looking forward to playing a part in your son/daughter growth and developement during their high school years. During a very sucessful 33 year military career, I was blessed with the opportunity to mentor and mold young Marines. It was one of the most rewarding part of my career. Along the way it became something I enjoyed so much, I looked for ways to continue doing the same when my military career ended. Given my desire to continue to help mold, mentor, and be a positive role model to the youth of this nation, I decided to become an educator in the form of a MCJROTC instructor. I have been an MCJROTC instructor for 8 years, 6 of those was spent as the Senior Marine Instructor at Franklinton High. I then took the challenge to become a Marine Instructor at New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy for the past 2 years. Although a very rewarding experience, I learned the my true value was to instruct in a traditional MCROTC program. Mandeville High has allowed me that opportunity and to say I'm excited to be here would be an understatement at best. I truely beleive that parental involvement in extra curricular activities is just as important as classroom instruction and your involement with the MCJROTC program is welcomed. During the school year, I will be in contact with you to discuss the progress of our son/daughter.
