Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett released the following statement regarding her recent visit with JROTC students from the Charlotte Amalie High School:

“I was especially pleased to meet four bright, young Virgin Islanders from the Charlotte Amalie High School this past week. The four students are in Washington, D.C. to compete in the College Option Foundation’s JROTC Leadership Academic Bowl and made it to the top 40 chosen out of 1400 groups. What an accomplishment! I am tremendously proud of how hard this group of students have worked to make it thus far. They have my full support as they compete this Saturday, June 24.

“More than ever, our Virgin Islands students need our consistent encouragement and support. As they make their way through the uncertainty and ever-changing landscape of adolescence while also dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is extremely important that we do all that we can to foster their growth, development and achievement.

“Good luck to the Charlotte Amalie JROTC students! You have already made us proud. I know you’ll do well.
