Congratulations to Cadet Commander Adonia Riley

Hampton District One is pleased to congratulate Commander William Murtagh, Senior Chief Stone and the NJROTC for their recent Distinguished Unit award.  Hampton One is very fortunate to have two dedicated individuals supporting our students.  

Here is a note from Commander Murtagh:

Please join me in congratulating Cadet Commander Adonia Riley, her staff and all NJROTC cadets in being recognized as Distinguished Unit, the Navy's top tier national award! This award recognizes overall unit activity and accomplishments as well as massive amounts of community service and school support. The cadets did a great job and shows that little Wade Hampton can easily hold their own with much larger schools with far more resources.

Notable and key to this award is the overall support from faculty, community, administration and school board. Most units don't enjoy the support that we do. You all share in this award, right along with the cadets.
