Challenge 77SEPTEMBER 14, 2021 – On Saturday Sept. 11, as a way commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11, more than 300 JROTC students participated in the Public Safety Challenge at Reagan High School.

Superintendent Tricia McManus and School board member Deanna Kaplan were among the community leaders on hand. Also there were representatives of Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, the Winston-Salem Police Department, the Winston-Salem Fire Department and Forsyth County Emergency Services.

Many parents were also there. 

Sponsored by the City of Winston-Salem and by Forsyth County, the 9/11 Public Safety Challenge was a way to honor those lost on 9/11 while encouraging JROTC participants to consider careers in public service.

Chorus students at Reagan sand the National Anthem. After the opening ceremony, JROTC students competed in a series of challenges, including marksmanship and close order drills.
