The first annual recognition ceremony honoring North Florida's enlisting high school graduates of 2014 was held on April 17th at the University Center Club at Doak Cambell stadium on the campus of Florida State University.  The ceremony is sponsored by "Our Community Salutes" (OCS), which is a non-profit, all volunteer organization that was started in 2009 in New Jersey.  The goal of the organization is to recognize and honor high school seniors (and their parents/guardians) who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation.
Students from twelve districts in North Florida were represented at the event along with approximately 400 parents, military officials and school staff.  One graduating senior student, Colby Owens, from Liberty County High School along with his parents, principal and superintendent attended the event.  The ceremony, hosted by WCTV news anchor, Julie Montanaro, included a program that provided inspirational and motivating speeches by several high ranking military officials.  Each student and their parents were given a momento of the event and the culminating activity was the recruits participating in the Affirmation of Oath of Enlistment administered by LT Norris, US Navy.
Best wishes and good luck to Colby Owens and other students from Liberty County High School that will be enlisting in the military after high school.  Thanks for your willingness and commitment to serve the United States of America to protect our freedoms.
