On Friday, November 3, Key Club And JROTC joined forces and traveled to John Burroughs High School to help package over 200,000 meals during World Food Day. Student volunteers and sponsors Ms. Alana Parks and Lt. Col. Gray worked from 8-11 and packaging over 2000 meals.

All high school clubs and organizations were given a table to work an “assembly style” teamwork exercise to prepare meals for World Food Day. This event was physically demanding in that the students had to stand up at the tables for 3 hours. McCluer students even helped out with another school that didn’t bring enough people to make a team so McCluer essentially had three tables and got to visit and to work with students from the other school. “I don’t think that school was quite ready for McCluer students, but, hey, they were all motivated by the Cadets and joined in with a LOUD & THUNDEROUS “HOOAH!!” as we finished packaging a box of meals. Overall, they accomplished the mission well. Teamwork and rotation schedules were key to their success so I applaud them all as I didn’t hear one complaint,” stated Lt. Col. Gray.
