The 31st annual Linda Vista Multi-Cultural Parade was held on Saturday, April 23, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Its purpose was to promote cultural awareness and understanding within San Diego.
Many Kearny JROTC cadets who attended the parade had come to school by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday. After about 1 hour of marching rehearsal, they started marching down the street. While they were marching, many people on the wayside cheered for them with enthusiasm. During the parade and throughout the day, attendees were able to enjoy a fun and exciting fair.
Amazingly, it took about 2 hours to march there and walk all the way back to Kearny. However, everyone did a great job, and I was really proud of attending the JROTC parade.
JROTC Cadet Ball was successfully held at Town & Country Resort Hotel from 6-11 pm on March 19. Thank you for all the participants, performers, and the organizing committee members. This event would not be as successful without all your support.
Kearny JROTC Archers brought home two bronze medals and one 4th place medal (all of them individual awards), and we brought home a 4th place medal for the Team format at the Olympic Archery in Schools (OAS) City Tournament held at the Olympic Training Center this past Saturday.
Please congratulate the following individuals for their achievements this past weekend. It is worth noting that several of the coaches, and the OAS director, commented on how much they had improved from last season and they were very impressed with our Archers.

Asia Dunbar – 3rd place Bronze medal for Singles Format
