Tulsa Union High School’s JROTC unit is raising money to go to Washington for the inaugural parade. Students and instructors have raised about $21,000 but they need about $35,000. They are set to leave Friday for the Tuesday parade.
The unit is one of six JROTC units from across the country that will be marching in the parade and Oklahoma’s only representative. Students will march in formation three to five miles before getting to the parade route on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Students said they are excited to be part of this historic event and are ready to represent their state well.
Contributions can be mailed to Union AFJROTC Booster Club, care of Carol Anderson, 8535 E 64, Tulsa, OK 74133. People can also contact the AFJROTC instructors for more information or to help. Their e-mail addresses are Lt. Col. Ronald McCool, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Senior Master Sgt. Dan Snow, email@example.com.
