For several years now, the JROTC cadets have provided the Color Guard and led the first lap for the Franklin County Relay for Life at Collins Perley in St. Albans. The event takes place annually in late June. Last Saturday, cadets Mark Ryea and Cedric White looked sharp in their uniforms while NHS students Faith Reed, Noah Carpenter and Ashley Paquette were joined by Gracie Lanphear, Lindsay Westcom, Jenna Hansen and Jacob Parent, wearing especially designed t shirts.
The students have decided to challenge other members of the school, as well as teachers, to participate next year. Enosburg Falls High School was the only school this year to have a team and students have pledged to have even more of a presence next year. The annual event raises money to provide programs and help to cancer patients and their caregivers. Survivors, caregivers and their supporters come together every year to celebrate life and honor those who have lost their lives to cancer.
