The 2018 JROTC Ball was held at Aztec High School in the multipurpose room on December 14, 2018 and was a great night because of the amazing team effort of all the cadets involved. Sargent Victor Snover, also the Mayor of Aztec, beamed with pride as he spoke of the team effort preparing for a night that is much like a High School Homecoming Dance or Prom. Bloomfield and Kirtland High Schools JROTC also take turns hosting the annual traditional formal ball. The U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) is a program offered to high schools that teaches students character education, student achievement, wellness, leadership, and diversity per the JROTC website and Sgt. Snover.

Dr Hall and his wife attended along with all the instructors as well as Dana Hawkins of the National Park Service. In total two hundred twenty-five people did attend the formal event that offered a choice of prime rib, roast beef or a chicken dinner with all the extras including strawberry cheesecake. The hospitality class helped serve the fine dining experience for only $15. Unfortunately, to keep costs down AHS JROTC did lose money so everyone could attend and not be left out.

The Grog Bowl was a PG-rated version that included drinking colored water. Everyone from the neighboring schools JROTC enjoyed toasting the colored water representing Bobcat Blood or Tiger Hair from shot glasses in traditional military style with lots of laughter per Cadet Captain and 2018 JROTC Queen Brandy Benavidec, a senior at AHS. The highlight of the evening was Southwest DJ playing everyone's favorite dance songs. Pictured is our handsome men and lovely ladies, AHS JROTC in formal dress at the 2018 JROTC Ball.
