Roanoke Rapids High School’s JROTC program petition to keep the armory

This petition had 813 supporters

I am a part of the JROTC program and I personally have seen it change people’s lives for the better. It has been stated that JROTC is on board or okay with the move but we are not no one was ever contacted regarding this move. JROTC is a great organization that does great things for not only this school system but our community as a whole. These kids deserve the armory they need the room that the armory provides. This program consisting of right below 100 cadets and growing is to big for one classrooms this being said the plan that the school board has offered just won’t work for these kids. I am all for the early college I think it’s a great idea but it’s not right to take these kids away from what they know. The armory was already renovated especially for the use for JROTC. The school board says that we will still be able to use the gym part of the armory because the walls are sound proof this is not true the students in the early college would be distracted by us if we used the gym. The armory is the programs home and it shouldn’t leave
