A link to the Booster Club donation page is available on the right side of this web site for those who would like to make a donation in honor of Cadet Claudia Haynes. Here is the link also : https://squareup.com/store/whs-warriors-jrotc-booste . The Booster Club will use all funds donated in Cadet Haynes memory to fund a yearly scholarship in her name, for a deserving Senior cadet to use for advanced education. Details on amount and selection process will be coming soon.
Upon return to school after the Hurricane, Cadets will be required to wear the uniform. It will be open collar. Any questions, leave a message on our facebook page or email Maj Farese at firstname.lastname@example.org.
