Wauchula Lodge No. 17 AFJROTC Awards Ceremony

My Brothers,

On Friday May 13th, Wauchula Lodge No. 17 continued its tradition of honoring cadets from the Hardees Senior High School AFJROTC (Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) program by presenting two national level awards, the Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction medal/ribbon that was presented R:.H:. Gary Gordon, P:.M:. Ean Eddy and Bro. Paul Crothers (32nd Degree), the national Sojourner medal and ribbon presented by Wauchula's sitting Worship Master Danny Lackey, Past Master and current Secretary Ean Eddy and Senior Warden Bro. Paul Crothers. It was a privilege and honor to carry on a legacy this lodge first established with this school and school district in 1895, when members of our Lodge built the first ever high school in Wauchula and who’s first teachers were wives of some of these members. Since then, our involvement with this school included Superintendents, Administrators, teachers and support staff. Even today, we have one member who is a teacher at the middle school and another who is support staff at the elementary. So, in honoring the achievement of these cadets we are also honoring a commitment we made over 128 years ago. Well Done Cadets! Go Wildcats! The Freemasons of Wauchula Lodge No. 17 will always have your back.

Fraternally,
W:. Danny Lackey, Worshipful Master, Wauchula Lodge No. 17
