NJROTC News

Today Chad Langford with Horace Mann presented a check to Lieutenant Commander Young and our NJROTC program to fully fund their flight simulator!

This is a very big deal as it will eventually lead to possible college level classes and credit for our NJROTC program.  Not to mention it is just very cool.  We had five of Horace Mann’s area leaders on campus along with the community relations department from the district to present this surprise.

Debate Team results

Congratulations to the AHS Debate Team for competing in the Central Florida Debate Initiative’s tournament last night.  Twenty schools competed at Olympia High School and our team was the only one to compete from our county.  Our students did amazingly well, earning high points in their respective categories.  Special congratulations goes to Chad Stephens and Isaiah Vega, who placed third in their category, as well as Debate Coach Mrs. Rosalie White, who was the recipient of the Coaches’ Recognition Award for the competition.
