Pass in Review Entertains Crowd at Berry Center

The 11th annual Cypress-Fairbanks ISD JROTC Pass in Review took place on April 20 at the Berry Center. Approximately 900 cadets representing CFISD’s eight JROTC units and all 10 high schools showcased their skills before a crowd that district AFJROTC coordinator Judy Reidy called the best spectator turnout in the event’s 11-year history.

“It was so gratifying to see the participation of Dr. Henry, Dr. Macias, Mary Jadloski, Teresa Hull, all 10 high school principals, associate principals, directors of instruction and a considerable turnout of cadets’ families in attendance on Saturday,” Reidy said. “Also, the founder of AFJROTC in CFISD, [Spillane Middle School namesake] Carolyn Spillane, who brought the first unit to the district, attended with her husband, Jim, as well as her brother—a veteran himself—and his wife. The Pass in Review was as crisp as the weather on Saturday morning and was an honor to be a part of.”
