Cadets of the Red River High School Jr ROTC program went to the NASA Space Center in Houston on a field trip. They also visited the Galleria Mall in Houston.
ROTC commander Major Thomas Edwards and two other adults accompanied 38 cadets on the two-day trip. Major Edwards described the trip as “a great opportunity for the students. Highlight of the trip was a tour of the Space Center.”
The cadets took a trolly tour of the NASA facilities. Major Edwards said “they were invited into the Space Center Control System where they received a briefing on the space program.”
There was also time for fun on the trip. The ROTC cadets toured the Galleria for shopping and a meal.
