COVID-19 has presented many challenges in schools over the past year. From in-person to remote to hybrid learning, high school students across the country have faced hardships and struggles. Through all the challenges of COVID-19 and distance learning, Army JROTC cadets have risen to the challenge through their participation in the 2020-2021 JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl.
The cadets from Richmond Hill High School have proven their ability to overcome those obstacles.
