On Saturday, a Jennings JROTC detachment led by their battalion commander answered the call for service. The Hugh J. White Tuskegee Airmen Chapter sent out an invitation to JROTC units in the bi-state area to help make a difference. The chapter offered an opportunity of service and lunch. The chapter also shared information on numerous scholarship opportunities available for the cadets.
16 cadets came with their leadership to partner with chapter members and other volunteers. On this gloomy and sometimes rainy day they stained benches to provide a resting place for individuals to visit in comfort. They moved the lawns to help maintain the work of previous volunteers and they attacked a hill to reclaim the land. Their efforts helped uncover some tombstones that marked the final resting place of loved ones. This mighty group earned the gratitude of Greenwood Cemetery Preservation Association leadership President Raphael Morris. The Hugh J. White Chapter thanks them for their effort. We hope and plan to partner with them in the future.
