Allure Adams and Olivia Meholic, DMCA Alumni class of 2016, were appointed as JROTC Battalion Commanders for their Senior Year at Cocoa Beach High School and Merritt Island High School. Their responsibility as a senior cadet in the unit is to provide leadership to subordinate cadets for training, efficiency, discipline, administration and welfare. It is the highest leadership position a cadet can have in the JROTC battalion unit.
“Throughout my time at DMCA, all of my teachers constantly encouraged me to give my best effort in everything I did. This motivation pushed me to excel both inside the classroom and out in the community. Once I came to high school, I was already drawn to the JROTC program since both of my brothers were in it, but I wanted something more. I wanted to give even more than my best effort. This internal pull to succeed no doubt originated right at Divine Mercy, ultimately helping me reach the highest position in the program. “
