More than 700 Cadets from nearly all Cobb County and Marietta high schools participated in the ceremony. Maj. Larry Moyers, the host school’s JROTC instructor, explained that the purpose of a pass in review is to honor the accomplishments of the cadets and the military itself.
“It’s a ceremony that’s used to recognize individuals for accomplishments or for a guest commander to review the troops and see what they look like,” he said. “So it’s kind of a combination in honors.”
Two students from each school were honored with either the Superintendent’s Award or the Military Officers Association Award.
Cobb Schools Superintendent Michael Hinojosa, Marietta City Schools superintendent Emily Lembeck and Lt. Gen. Joseph Redden reviewed the cadets.
