Stars, Stripes, and Military Ball Night

By: Claudia Quesada

On Saturday, December 9th, JROTC students and their dates had a night to remember at the annual Military Ball.

The night began at 2000 hours (8:00pm) with a special toast to the President of the United States followed by other honorable mentions. Continuing to stand, the crowd of a couple hundred people, including students, parents, and teachers, sang the national anthem. After the song was over, groups of tables were dismissed to grab food from the buffet, which was run by the dedicated JROTC parents. Once everyone was finished, the students finally stepped out onto the sparkling dance floor and the party began.

About an hour later, the crowd was directed back to their seats. It was time to recognize the seniors for their diligent work in their time as a member of JROTC.

After all the seniors were brought to the center of the gymnasium, a group of young cadets brought out the cake for the traditional cake cutting ceremony. The cake had all the seniors names on it and was cut using long swordlike utensils called Sabers. Battalion Commander Ben Wadley (12) gladly mentioned that, “the Military Ball is the final step in our journey toward maturity in JROTC.” Similarly some of his fellow classmates highlighted it as a “privilege” and an “honor” to be a part of.

To provide some background, the Military Ball has been an event at Male High since the end of the Civil War. According to major Meneghetti, “The Military Ball goes back well over 100 years” serving to promote cordiality, comradeship, and esprit de corps. In other words, it emphasizes the attributes of friendship, brotherhood, and unity.

The JROTC students of Male High are thankful to be able to continue this tradition of the Military Ball and are looking forward to the next elite group of seniors for their legacy to be passed.
