Seventh- and eighth-graders at Robert Smalls Middle School will be able to participate in a new military science program next year.
The program, which was first presented at the Beaufort County Board of Education's meeting on March 6, was approved at Tuesday's meeting on a unanimous vote. Board member Steven Morello was absent.
We first wrote about the program last week. Denise Smith, the principal at Robert Smalls Middle, said she hopes the program will instill leadership skills in her students and teach them that they are in control of their lives and their decisions. She's also hopeful the program will help ease the transition for students to Battery Creek High School. That school has a large JROTC program — about 240 in 760 students are members.
