Some of our activities. Air Force Junior ROTC Awards presentation
Thus a new chapter, Victoria No. 50, in the Texas Society, Sons of the American Revolution, was chartered in Victoria on Saturday, December 11, 1993. The ceremony was hosted by Mrs. Craig Bade, past regent of the Guadalupe Victoria Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution at her home at 700 North Craig. Colonel Delbert C. Fowler, President of the Texas Society presented the Chapter Charter to Dr. Glover and those present elected him as the chapterís first president.
Each year this chapter presents an award to a first year cadet in the Memorial Stroman High School Air Force Junior ROTC program. This award consists of a bronze medal with ribbon and bar. The recipient is a cadet selected by his peers and recognizes all-around excellence in aerospace science studies. The recipient must exhibit a high degree of leadership, military bearing, and all-around excellence in aerospace science studies.
For several years, the Chapter has participated in the National Societyís Eagle Scout and Recognition and Scholarship Program. Those achieving the rank of Eagle Scout have demonstrated their belief in the same principles as those deemed important by the Sons of the American Revolution. For this reason we believe these Eagle Scouts are deserving of special recognition for their accomplishments and their dedication. All Eagle Scouts are presented certificates by the Chapter and the Eagle Scout who is selected to represent the chapter at state competition receives a bronze medal and a savings bond.
