Hello,It is my pleasure to be serving as one of three Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) Instructors. I proudly served 22 years and 9 months in the United States Navy and "transitioned" from the Navy on December 31, 2012. I am a "Military Brat", my father was enlisted in the United States Air Force for 23 years. I joined the Navy shortly after graduating from Hillcrest High School in Sumter, SC. I have been stationed on the following ships: USS TRUETT (FFT-1095) in Ingleside, TX, USS NICHOLSON (DD 982) in Charleston, SC, USS VINCENNES (CG-49) in Yokusaka, Japan, USS AUSTIN (LPD-4) in Norfolk, VA and USS MAHAN (DDG-72) in Norfolk, VA. I was stationed at the following shore stations: Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, FL and Recruit Training Command (RTC) Great Lakes in Great Lakes, IL. I enjoyed my tour at RTC Great Lakes for 3.5 years as a Recruit Division Commander (RDC) where I yelled and screamed at recruits and eventually turning them into motivated, "hard-charging" Navy Sailors. "HOOYAH"!I started teaching in Georgetown at Georgetown High School (GHS) on January 22, 2013. We (NJROTC) are currently located at East View High School in Georgetown. Buses will transport students to and from GHS to EVHS daily so that ALL students have the opportunity to be a part of the greatest organization in Georgetown.
