Charles Cartee of Bryant High is one of five cadets who have been chosen to serve on Mobile County Public Schools’ JROTC Brigade Command for 2018-19.
Cartee, who is already a member of the Army National Guard, was selected as Honorary Deputy Brigade Commander. “Nothing is strong enough to stop the human spirit,” he told his fellow JROTC students during a recent ceremony announcing the selections. “If you want something, go for it.”
The rest of the brigade command for the 2018-19 school year:
- William Skull of Baker High, Brigade Commander
- Ja’Kyla Lewis of Murphy High, Brigade Command Sergeant Major
- Nathan McGregor of Vigor High, Honorary Deputy Brigade Commander
- Melanie Yell of Mary G. Montgomery, Honorary Deputy Brigade Commander
Two candidates from each of Mobile County Public Schools’ 12 high schools competed for these positions. These five cadets will lead a total of about 1,800 JROTC students throughout the district.
