Area parents rallying


against education cuts

Rose Jefferson (above) and her daughter, Eileen (not
pictured), helped raise Runk for Canine Companions for
Independence.

CCI dogs are caretakers

for the disabled


By Amy Quesinberry

It must be hard to raise a
puppy and then give it away.
But Rose Jefferson has done it
nine times and is ready to take
in another four-legged furball
- because she knows the
difference it makes in the lives
of people with disabilities.
The Winter Garden resident
was first introduced to Canine,
Companions for Independence
13 years ago when her
daughter's friend, who is
physically disabled, received
an assistance dog from the
organization.
"I started reading about the
program and found information
on volunteer puppy raisers,"
Jefferson said. "It seemed like
a nice volunteer activity that my
daughter, Eileen, and I could do
together."
Eileen Jefferson, now 31, is
developmentally disabled, her
mother said, "but I have always
tried to encourage her to give
back to her community and try
to help others.".
So, even though Rose
Jefferson had no experience
with potty-training puppies,
she signed up to bring one into'


her home.
"Thankfully, CCI gives you
lots of information on puppy
raising and the staff was always
there to answer my questions,"
she said. "So, we began a
wonderful journey with our first
puppy, Antonio."
On Saturday, Jefferson handed
over Runk, her ninth puppy,
during CCI's matriculation
and graduation ceremony at
SeaWorld Orlando. The black
Labrador retriever/golden
retriever mix accompanied her
everywhere during the training
phase. This included her job at
Hospice of the Comforter.
She said she is grateful to all
the local businesses for allowing
her to bring Runk inside to help
with his socialization skills.
"This is one of the most
important responsibilities of
being a puppy raiser," Jefferson
said. "These dogs are going to
be an integral part of the life of
a person with a disability. They
are going to have to perform in
a variety of environments and
situations."
Jefferson admits it's never
easy letting go of a puppy

PTAs have
organized petition
drives, letter-
writing campaigns
and community
meetings to let
legislators know
their position on
cutting education
funds.
By Amy Quesinberry
Parents all over West Or-
ange County are uniting to
let legislators know they are
against any more cuts to the
state's education program. Or-
ange County Public Schools
made a budget cut of $70 mil-
lion for this school year, and
it is expected that the Florida
Legislature when it begins
its session next week might
cut $102 million more from
next year's OCPS budget.
Last Friday, nearly 20 par-
ents met with State Rep. Steve
Precourt in his Winter Garden
office to provide petitions
signed by parents at the 10
West Orange County schools
they represented.
The petition is a declaration
to the legislature that "budget
cuts to education are absolute-
ly not acceptable."
Lisa Brodsky, PTA presi-
dent at Sunset Park Elemen-
tary, acted as spokesperson for
the newly formed group that
calls itself PALs, or Parents
As Leaders. Many of the oth-
ers attending the meeting are
. members of PTAs and School
Advisory Councils at Dillard
Street, Tildenville, Whisper-
ing Oak, Sunset Park, Lake
Whitney, Westbrooke and
MetroWest elementaries; and
Lakeview, Bridgewater and
Gotha middle schools.
Brodsky's message was to
the point. "We believe these
additional cuts are detrimen-
tal."
She told Precourt: "The job
of your [legislative] body is to
find money."
Precourt listened to all the
comments and said he shared
everyone's concerns. He
asked for input on which taxes

gether against further education budget cuts.


could be raised to avoid cut-
ting the education budget, he
discussed the state's national
ranking in, student funding
and school quality, and he
shared the dilemma of teach-
ers unions remaining adamant
about keeping the class size
smaller.
Brodsky said, "We want the
legislature to know we're not
going away.".
Penny McLaughlin read
quotes from several letters
written by students at Lake-
view Middle School. One
student, Randy, wrote: "Think
about how you became a rep-
resentative. With luck?' No.
Money? No. Now how about
education? Get the picture?
Without us there will be no
America."
Matthew, another LMS
student, wrote: "Economic
bailout, $850 billion. Auto
bailout, $25 billion. School
bailout, $0."
In her letter, Meagan pleaded
with Precourt: "I will politely
say, 'Please find the money
from somewhere else.'"
McLaughlin added: "They
are concerned about what
graduating from a Florida high
school will look like when ap-
plying to colleges."
"I am committed to fund-
ing quality education," Rep.
Precourt assured the group
Friday. "This is a great step in
the right direction."
While the meeting took


place inside, dozens more
parents stood outside on DilU
lard Street urging drivers
to "honk for education" and
holding Florida PTA-spon-
sored signs protesting the pro-
posed budget cuts.
PALs representatives plan
to visit District 9 Sen. Andy
Gardiner this Thursday, Feb.
26, at 8:30 a.m. at his Michi-
gan Street office in Orlando.
In a statement Precourt re-
leased Friday afternoon, he
said: "I commend these par-
ents for taking an active role
in the education of their chil-
dren. Education begins in the
home, and this effort is a great
teaching moment for their
families."
Individual schools are ral-
lying parent support this week
too. Dillard Street's PTA held a
letter-writing campaign meet-
ing Tuesday night, Tildenville
had planned an informational
session with bilingual parents
for this Wednesday, and Whis-
pering Oak plans a rally this
Friday at 9:30 a.m.
In addition, Timber Creek
High School in southeast
Orange County organized a
letter-writing rally against
proposed budget cuts, and
more than 4,500 letters were
signed by parents, educators
and members of the commu-
nity. The letters will be mailed
to Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Florida Legislature prior to
next week's session.


Ocoee approves road resurfacing


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The city of Ocoee is plan-
ning to spend $195,840.95 for
road resurfacing projects. The
elected officials approved this
amount, as well as the roads
slated for improvement, at
their regular meeting Feb. 17.
Three hundred thousand
dollars is allowed for road re-


surfacing in the city budget
this year. So far, $6,124 has
already been spent for paving
the approaches to the recon-
structed railroad crossing at
Bluford Avenue.
In addition, the Public
Works Department recom-
mends resurfacing the roads
in the West Orange Industrial
Park, including Enterprise
Street, Capital Court and


Roper Parkway, at a cost of
$124,467.70.
The residential streets that
will also undergo improve-
ment are Little Rock Street,
Sand Pine Avenue, Springfoot
Street, Blue Spring Court and
Freedom Court with a price
tag of $57,487.75.
In addition, 408 linear feet

Westbrooke Elementary needs community help

in buffering campus from Turnpike widening


Photo courtesy of Westbrooke Elementary
Tqaffic from the Florida Turnpike is .jnly 156 feet from the north side of Westbrooke El-
ementary School in Ocoee, and the road will be widened to 12 lanes by next yar.


By Mary Anne Swickerath

The new Westbrooke Ele-
mentary School, just off South
Maguire Road in Ocoee, was
built adjacent to the Florida
Turnpike with thousands of
cars and trucks whizzing by
each day on six lanes of traffic
with the accompanying noise
and pollution only 156 feet
away from the northern edge
of the school's campus.
And there is worse news for
the school: Florida's Turnpike
Enterprise is widening that
road to 12 lanes, bringing it
29 feet closer to the school's
property, a construction proj-
ect expected to be completed
in the fall of 2010, with a pro-
jected total of 96,000 vehicles
passing daily by then.
No acoustical wa* are
planned to separate West-


brooke from the traffic be-
cause, as explained by the
Turnpike's public information
officer, Christa Deason, "The
widening project hearing and
design process was completed
years before the school was
planned."
But she added, that some
landscaping will be installed
on the Turnpike's property in
that area after the project is
finished.
Westbrooke families have
come up with their own so-
lution to further buffer the
school from the road. It is
called the Fence Line Project,
and parents are working to
raise $18,000 for landscaping
along the 900-foot-long back
fence. This landscaping will
be divided into alternating

This week I would like to tell you the story
of two single moms. The first is named
Amy and the second is Jenny. Both moms
work and raise their children, two and four
respectively. Like most of us, both have hit
various "bumps" in the road along the way
and often characterize life as a struggle.
A few years back, Amy's children began to
attend the local YMCA and their exciting
journey of change began. The children
connected with the volunteers and staff and
Amy began to notice their transformation.
It wasn't long before Amy herself began to
respond to her children's repeated requests
to become involved. They began to attend
church and the children's transformation
became Amy's.
A few months ago, Jenny found herself in
a difficult situation. On medical leave from
her job because of complications from the
birth of her youngest, she no longer could
pay her rent. As a mother of two with
limited financial resources, homelessness
became Jenny's new reality.
Upon hearing of Jenny's plight, Amy did,
an amazing thing. This hardworking single
mother of four opened her home to Jenny
and her two children. On move-in day, I
was humbled by Amy's sacrifice. To make
room for Jenny and her children, Amy had
given up her bedroom and moved into her
new baby's room, the size of a large closet.
When people ask me what should be done
during these challenging times, I point to
the example of Amy. And when people ask
me during this era of financial cutbacks why
I continue to give and volunteer at places
like the Roper YMCA, I point not only to
Amy and her family but to the returns of
that investment in Jenny and her children.

4A The West Orange Times Thursday, February 26, 2009


Opinion


The Orange County Public Schools
system is receiving almost $1,000
less per student this year than it re-
ceived two years ago. The school dis-
trict lost $70 million in funding this
year and expects to lose $102 million
next year. Teachers have lost their
jobs and so have longtime employees
at the district office.
The School Board is right now is
the midst of trying to decide where
else to cut (coaches' supplements?
athletic schedules? media specialists?
new textbooks?) and the decisions
are proving painful.
Five members of the School Board
spoke to the West Orange Chamber
membership last Thursday and ex-
pressed the difficulty in choosing
where they will reduce spending in
the coming weeks.
As School Board Chairman JQie
Cadle said at the breakfast, "We are
in crises mode right now."
The simple fact is local school
boards need more help from the Flor-
ida Legislature. Our elected officials
at the state level need to find a way to
divert more money to schools, even
in this economic downturn.
And it is equally important for
state legislators to suspend exist-
ing programs and mandates that are
not critical to classroom operations,
especially unfunded mandates, and


to give more local control and flex-
ibility for school boards throughout
Florida.
These school boards cannot come
up with creative solutions to their
budgetary woes without this flex-
ibility.
Those who feel strongly about this
issue should contact their state sena-
tor, Andy Gardiner (gardiner.andy.
web@flsenate.gov), and state rep-
resentatives, Bryan Nelson (bryan.
nelson@myfloridahouse.gov) and
Steve Precourt (stephen.precourt@
myfloridahouse.gov). (To Nelson's
credit, he did attend the Chamber
breakfast last week.)
Many parents are already doing just
that, as well as meeting with Rep.
Precourt in his Winter Garden office
last week to show a united front in
their campaign for school funding.
(See front-page story.)
We agree with Ocoee High Prin-
cipal Mike Armbruster, who told
The West Orange Times: "I am an
optimist, a person who gets up every
day with a belief that all children can
learn, a belief that most people are
good people trying to make a differ-
ence and a belief that my elected state
officials will honor our state constitu-
tion and adequately fund education.
On this last one, I have been sorely
disappointed."

Editorials


Education for our children deserves

75 years ago
On Dec. 15, 1933, the first issue of The Town
Crier appeared. With this issue [Feb. 23, 1934]
we are changing the name to The West Orange
News. [The newspaper was started in 1905 as
The Winter Garden Ricochet].
A drive to enroll young Orange County men
in the League of Young Democrats is now under

The Office of Price Administration stated that

From Editor's Notebook: Many amusing sto-
ries were told about Hoyle Pounds at the recent
gathering in his honor. The one that tickled us
the most was the one about his ability as a super
salesman. It seems that a customer stopped by
Pounds Motor Co. to get some sparkplugs. He
wound up with a brand new tractor, a new boat
and a trailer. But he forgot the sparkplugs he
went in for.

Reader opinions

Letters to the editor


School Board member discusses budget issues


Editor:
I believe the economic conditions we are
currently facing will be viewed as historic and
significantly alter how families, businesses
and governments currently conduct business.
Aspects of operations that are inefficient or
over-sized must be reduced. And unfortu-
nately, even critical, fundamental programs
are being analyzed and restructured to reduce
bottom lines.
Orange County is facing a 15 percent, or
$100 million dollar, deficit. We are constitu-
tionally required to balance our budget. We
have no independent authority to increase
funding to pay for programs. The Florida
State Legislature reduced our funding these
past two years over $170 million dollars.
Thus, we must look for efficiencies and
methods to reduce costs in every department,
every school and every extracurricular activ-
ity. We are looking at reducing the number of
non-core classroom staff and possibly closing
five to eight small elementary schools. We are
looking for more flexibility and local control
from Tallahassee so that our board, after seek-
ing community input, has greater authority
year-round to make critical adjustments. In
addition, I am looking at creative ways to
find new revenue streams through innovative
marketing programs, sponsorships, fees, af-
fitiity cards, etc. ".


As a parent of two school-aged children
currently involved in numerous extracurricu-
lar activities including sports and music -
I could write volumes about the valub of these
activities for children. Not one member of
the current OCPS School Board spoke in last
night's work session in favor of the wholesale
elimination of sports programs. This has been
reported by our media way too many times
to needlessly scare the public.
I was the catalyst at this week's work ses-
sion on a proposal to revise the fund-raising
policy. I would like to inspire and encour-
age greater participation in age-appropriate
fund-raising. In addition, I am hearing from
FHSAA members about their work on mak-
ing uniform game reductions across the state.
This will reduce our travel and game official
expenses. We are also exploring minimum
amounts of "fees" for student athletes. My ul-
timate desire is to not eliminate any program
but find savings through carefully researched
reductions and generation of additional rev-
enues.
The Orange County School Board is com-
mitted to keeping Orange County an A-rated
district. If you have any additional questions
or comments on any of these proposals, con-
tact me at Christine.moorel @ocps.net

School Board Member District 7

NEXT to bring back much-talked-about film
in partnership with St. Pauls Presbyterian


NEXT Community Church in partnership with
St. Pauls Presbyterian in Ocoee is once again
hosting a free showing of the much-talked-about
film Lord Save Us From Your Followers this
Friday, Feb. 27, at 7:30 p.m, This showing will
take place on the St. Pauls campus in the main
auditorium just off West Colonial Drive and
across from the West Oaks Mall.
Lord, Save Us from Your Followers is the
documentary that explores the collision of faith
and culture in America. Fed up with the angry,
strident language filling the airwaves that has
come to represent the Christian faith, director
(and follower) Dan Merchant set out to discover
why the Gospel of love is dividing America. Uti-
lizing a broad array of expert interviews, man-
on-the-street bits, animations and "I've never


seen that before" stunts, Lord, Save Us from Your
Followers aims to bring everyone into the con-
versation about religion.
With exclusive interviews with comedian/
senatorial candidate Al Franken, former sena-
tor and Religious Right inside man Rick Santo-
rum, noted liberal evangelical Tony Campolo,
conservative radio host Michael Reagan, racial
reconciliation activist Dr. John Perkins and fea-
tures with Bono, Pastor Rick Warren (Purpose
Driven Life), James Dobson, Jerry Falwell and
Pat Robertson, no stone is left unturned in this
challenging look at the conflict over religion in
America.

The Awana Club of Windermere Baptist Ministries recently held its 2nd Grand Prix
event.

Awana Club holds 2nd Grand Prix


The Awana Club of Wind-
ermere Baptist Church, 300
Main St., recently held its
second Grand Prix event. Boys
and girls from 2 years through
fifth grade raced the cars they
made to determine who made
the fastest car.
The 57 Pinewood Derby
cars were also judged for de-
sign, creativity, Awana Spirit,
Most Authentic Street Car
and other categories. Trophies
were awarded to the winners.
Each clubber started with
four wheels, four axles and
a block of wood, which they
designed and had cut into the
shape of their choice.
Cars were cut, painted
and decorated at a Pit Party
one week prior to the Grand


Prix, and most of the work
was done at that time. Parents
joined their children, and they
all worked together to come
up with some really creative
ideas.
Some cars were built for
speed. Chris Cotter took first
place with an average speed
of just 2.50 seconds, Daniel
Goins took second place with
2.52 seconds, and Halle Peak
took third place with 2.64 sec-
onds.
Others were creatively
themed or cut in various
shapes. Alex Cotter won first
place for Clubbers Choice for
his car shaped like a tube of
Crest toothpaste.
Joy Guikema won first place
for Most Colorful Car with a


pink butterfly, while Julia Par-
rish went with a black and yel-
low bumblebee.
Grant Larson covered his
grey car with black ants, and
Reagan Smith covered hers
with bright green daisies. The
mountain-climbing Sparky car
of Shannah Nice won the prize
for Awana Spirit, but a surfing
Spiderman, a guitar, a Butter-
fingers candy bar, an alliga-
tor and a rainbow were all fan
favorites.
. Awana meets each Sunday
from 4-5:45 p.m. and is open
to anyone who would like to
join. To get involved in the
program, please call Lynn
Bowman at 407-325-2486 or
send an email to her at lbow-
man@ fbcwindermere.com.

Garden club members learn about honey
Windermere Garden Club members welcomed Jean Va-
sicek of Winter Park Honey to their meeting Feb. 12. Va-
sicek presented a program on bees and how they produce
honey. She explained how complex the process is for both
the bees in making the honey and the beekeeper, who har-
vests it. She explained how mites often infect the hives,
killing off millions of bees. Florida is a small producer of
honey, but club members learned just how delicious the
local variety is.

100-foot sections, one a "Native
Florida" area that will recreate
a pine scrubland habitat and the
other a "Colorful Florida" area
that will highlight the state's
most attractive environmentally
friendly plants.
The plan was drawn up free
of charge by Jim Thomas of
Biosphere Consulting Inc. in
Winter Garden. The design will
not only be drought-tolerant and
serve as a natural habitat, it will
also serve as a way of teaching
the students about Florida flora
and fauna.
The hope is to begin work in
April; but, before then, much
fund-raising and much sup-
port from the community will
be necessary.
"We are looking to the com-
munity to help us with this
project," said Kim Wright, a


Ocoee
of El Marra Drive west of
Canyon Trail in the Windstone
subdivision will be milled and
resurfaced for $13,885.50. This
section of road prematurely
failed, according to Public
Works Director Steve Krug.
The repaving work will be
done by Orlando Paving Co.
On another matter, City Man-
ager Rob Frank announced that,
because of efforts from city
staff, Ocoee had two road proj-
ects approved on the MetroPlan
Maintenance and Operations
Funding list for federal stimu-
lus money when those funds be-
come available. The projects are
the resurfacing and construction
of Clarke Road north of Silver
Star Road and turn-lane con-
struction for the White Road
intersection at Clarke Road.
In other business, the elected
officials:
postponed hiring a contrac-
tor for the.demolition of the old
Colony Plaza Hotel on the cor-
ner of Maguire Road and West
Colonial Drive. The-matter will
be brought back to the commis-
sion at its March 3 meeting.
approved a back-up power
supply for the city's Lift Sta-
tion No. 7 at a cost not to ex-
ceed $95,000. The station has
been refurbished and relocated
north and west of Richmond
Avenue.

tal Committee of the school's

Two fund-raisers have al-
ready been held, and the com-

Westbrooke Principal Rob
Bixler told The West Orange
Times: "I am thrilled with the
support this project is beginning
to generate. We have the oppor-
tunity to beautify our campus
and create a learning environ-

Fawbush

pitches

no-hitter
Lady Warrior softball ace Tay-
lor Fawbush mowed down Free-
dom High batters with a no-hitter
in West Orange's 11-1 victory
last week. Fawbush finished with
seven strikeouts through five in-
nings while also connecting for
a pair of doubles and two RBIs
from the plate. The win improved
WOHS's record to 3-0.
"Taylor has thrown the ball
well, but she is capable of being
a lot more than just good," said
Head Coach Bobby Brewer. "I
think she is the best pitcher in
the state when she is punishing
the strike zone."
Kelly Lopez, Molly Billue
and Jasmine Butler all finished
with two hits apiece and multi-
ple RBIs. Val Proulx added two
RBIs with one hit, and Danielle
Brewer totaled three RBIs off
two doubles.
"I think a lot of teams have and
will continue to come out and
play their best games against us
because we do have a bull's eye
on our backs this year," Brewer-
said. "We have hit the ball pretty
good so far and our defense is
getting better, but we have got
to keep working hard."

Freedom with a no-
hitter last week.

Warrior baseball wins 2 out of 3


The West Orange High var-
sity baseball team won two out
of three games last week. The
Warriors opened with a 3-0
victory over Pine Castle Chris-
tian. Mason Williams pitched
a six-inning one-hitter with 10
strikeouts to control the game.
Austin Gomber entered for the
final inning to get the save.
Nolan Fontana powered the
offense with a two-for-three
performance, and Albert Lefran
and Christian Coburn both add-
ed base hits and runs scored.
The Warriors lost 3-0 to a
tough Lake Howell team that
held West Orange to only two
hits. Last Saturday, West Or-
ange rebounded by hosting
New Smyrna Beach and pull-
ing out an 8-7 win. After fall-
ing behind early, the Warriors
rallied in the bottom of the fifth
inning to take the lead for good.
Gomber pitched for the win,
and Fontana earned the save.
Lefran powered the comeback
with a multiple-hits perfor-
mance and three RBIs.
"Our at-bats were a lot better
this game than the past two,"
said WOHS Head Coach Jes-
se Marlo. "We went up there
with a much better approach
to what we wanted to do with
each pitch. Now we desperately
need one of the guys to step up
and win the No. 3 spot in the
rotation."
West Orange looks ahead to
playing at rival Ocoee High on
March 7 at 1 p.m.

Thornebrooke


Tillman named Support Person of the Year


Thornebrooke Elementary's Eco Club distributes the recycling bins to classes.


School goes green
At Thornebrooke Elemen-
tary, the Eco Club has worked
extremely hard to turn our
school into an eco-friendly en-
vironment. Our club consists
of dedicated fifth-graders who
are ready to change the world
and how we live today.
Since October 2008, our fel-
low peers have put together a
fully operating recycling pro-
gram. It is easy to start one;
the first step is to find students
willing to help. Next, get your
recycling bins and place them

Maxe --


around the school. At first you
may collect only one material,
such as paper. Then, once a
week have the selected stu-
dents collect the recyclables
and send them to places
where they can be made into
new items.
For instance, our Eco Club
collects our bins every Friday.
Right now we are only collect-
ing used paper, but our goal
is to be able to collect water
bottles, aluminum cans and
maybe even ink cartridges.
The point of all this effort is
to help the environment. It may


be a small start, but we work
hard to make our school a bet-
ter place. Who knows? May-
be the huge effort made by
Thornebrooke Elementary stu-
dents will spread to schools,
to counties, to states and to
countries around the world.
All we can do is try our best to
keep the Earth happy, for it is
our job. We owe the Earth that
much for protecting us day af-
ter day.
By Bailey Gavulic and Quin
Potter, Eco Club members


Magnolia School Program
Assistant Carol Tillman was
named Orange County's 2009
Support Person of the Year at
a ceremony held at the Rosen
Centre Hotel.
Tillman, who has worked for
the district for more than 20
years, has dedicated her life to
serving others..When she is not
at work helping students with
disabilities, she is helping her
community by cheering on Pop
Warner football players, driv-
ing her church bus or singing
in the church choir.
A mother of five and grand-
mother of five, Tillman said:
"Children believe more in
what they see people do than
in what they hear them say."
Tillman's talent is working
with students with emotional
disabilities. She helps Magno-
lia School students have a bet-
ter day by working with them
in the greenhouse, helping
them cook in the Kidz Kitch-
en and walking with them ori
school grounds.
Principal Patricia Taylor
said that while Tillman has an
extreme amount of patience
and empathy for her students,
she is not a pushover.
"She knows that these stu-
dents have to work harder
to achieve, but achieve they

gratulates Carol Tillman on being named Orange County
Public Schools' Support Person of the Year.


must," said Taylor. "She holds
high expectations for her stu-
dents because she is deter-
mined to help them become


self-regulating and indepen-
dent, and that requires them to
give all they have to the task
of learning."

Cadet 1st Lt. Garrett Med-
lock, a West Orange High stu-
dent, has been accepted to the
U.S. Air Force Academy Sum-
mer Seminar Program.
Medlock has a 3.85 GPA, is
a member of National Honor
Society, French Honor Soci-
ety, the cross country, wrestling
and track teams, as well as the
AFJROTC program at WOHS.
Students are evaluated and se-
lected for the Air Force program
based on academics, athletics
and extra-curricular activities,
and selection for the program is
highly competitive. Only 1,125
slots are made available each
summer.
The Air Force program is
an opportunity for high school
juniors going into their senior
year to see a realistic picture
of what cadet life is about. At
the end of the week, attendees
should have a clear understand-
ing of the commitment neces-
sary to attend the Air Force


Academy and to become an
Air Force officer.
Medlock and his peers will
spend a week immersed in ca-
det life and will be assigned to
an element with an upperclass
cadet as their element leader.
This cadet will be with them
almost 24 hours a day as their
mentor and guide. Medlock will
go to classes and workshops
taught by the same faculty who
instruct cadets.
Program attendees will par-
ticipate in a variety of physical
fitness activities, from morning
PT to a practice Candidate Fit-
ness Assessment.
At the conclusion of the
week, each participant will
become a "Doolie for a day."
During this day, they will ex-
perience what it's like to be a
fourth-class cadet, known as a
Doolie, and take part in activi-
ties such as marching, room in-
spections, military-knowledge
tests, obstacle course and stren-


uous physical training. At the
conclusion of the program, a
graduation dinner and culmina-
tion ceremony will be held.

a gift card to Office Depot to purchase supplies for her classroom.
