Red River High School is proud to announce that it has successfully formed their own Red River Young Marines Unit. The Young Marines is a national non-profit 501c (3) youth education and service program for boys and girls, aged eight through high school graduation. It promotes the mental, moral and physical development of its members. The program focuses on teaching the values of leadership, teamwork and self-discipline, so its members can live and promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
The Young Marines strengthens the lives of America’s youth by teaching the importance of self-confidence, academic achievement, honoring our veterans, good citizenship, community service, and living a healthy, drug- free lifestyle. The program focuses on character building and promotes a lifestyle that is conducive to being productive members of society.
RRHS Young Marines will be under the leadership of unit commander Ross Gamble. Gamble is a retired Marine Veteran who proudly served six years with an E-5 ranking at retirement. The students as well as Gamble are very excited to see what the future holds for everyone actively involved in the program. As the unit progresses there will be updates on the academic
achievements of each young marine as well as the projects in which they are involved in.
