“Moss Point High School’s NJROTC ‘Tiger Elite’ Thinks Pink”
This October, Moss Point High School Naval JROTC is “Thinking Pink” and supporting breast cancer awareness! Beginning October 1, Naval Instructors, Commander Slay and Master Chief Brown, issued pink cords for staff members and platoon leaders. The pink cords represent the unit’s support for “Breast Cancer Awareness”. During the month, these cords will be worn every Wednesday for Uniform Day, Homecoming events, and Color Guard events. “I think it is great we get to show our support and raise awareness,” said Cadet Brandon Brown. A couple of teachers also commented that it is a great idea and it is impressive because it does not only show the spirit of the unit, but the entire school itself. “I am very excited to wear the pink cords! Not only does it look cool, but I also get to represent my fellow cadets, instructors, and Moss Point High School,” said Cadet Malaysia McSwain. Although this is their first year participating in the campaign, they have supported numerous events over the past couple of years and still support them, including the Keesler Air Force Diversity STEM outreach program where they won 3 out of four competitions beating over 250 cadets from 10 different schools around the coast. A big thumbs-up for Moss Point High School’s NJROTC unit! They are looking forward to continuing this tradition of excellence during “Breast Cancer Awareness” month by sporting their pink cords.
