The Cougar Battalion met Wednesday morning in the big gym and every staff member joined them also.
This was not a usually meeting as typically the staff meet for staff meetings before school on Wednesday but the meeting was cancelled so that all of the staff members could gather in support of Teresa Novoa, a senior cadet who received the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Academic Achievement Award
The Legion of Valor is a federally chartered corporation created to promote patriotic allegiance to the United States. The LOV Bronze Cross for Achievement was established in 1951 and the Bronze Cross for Achievement rewards cadets from the Reserve Officers Training Corps who demonstrate "excellence in military, scholastic, and civic affairs.
Novoa is the only recipient of 8th Brigade which has over 25,000 cadets in the western states and Pacific region and a handful of over 160,000 cadets in the nation. The LOV Bronze Cross for Achievement is the biggest award for a JROTC cadet.
“It’s an honor for the WRHS JROTC program to have cadet Teresa Novoa awarded since she represents what the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Achievement medal encompasses” states LTC (Ret.) Michael Cerezo an instructor for Weston Ranch High School’s JROTC program.
Novoa has an impressive overall weighted GPA of 4.3 and is in the top 2% of her class. She has also volunteered at the San Joaquin Health Fair, Habitat for Humanity Restore and San Joaquin Asparagus Festival.
Novoa is seeking to pursue a position in the medical field after high school
