Tuscola Faculty Members,

For the 3rd year in a row, JROTC will be doing a hot air balloon demonstration on the practice field this Wednesday, August 30th during 2nd, 3rd, and 4th periods.  CMSgt James Eagle from the Enka HS AFJROTC program will be here with a few of his cadets to show us the process of setting up, inflating, flying, and taking down the hot air balloon.

Teachers, you are welcome to bring your students and observe if it fits with your schedule.  Please ensure you accompany any students you send to the practice field.  Per Dr. Garrett, only administrators and AFJROTC instructors may ride in the balloon.
