2017 Spirit Award Banner presentation made by Jennifer Ladd of Sports Network International (right) at the Nationals Masters Level Awards Ceremony to c/LTC Elizabeth Thompson representing the well rounded and exceptional Army Junior ROTC program at Airport High School in West Columbia, South Carolina. This high flying program earned their one-year reign and permanent battle streamer in front of 3,500+ spectators at the National High School Drill Team Championships Masters Level Awards Ceremony in sunny Daytona Beach, Florida.
The Golden Talons drill program under the direction of SGM Harry Ferguson have been a beacon for excellence for nearly a decade now and was a unanimous Spirit Banner selection this year! They maintain amazing conduct in and out of the drill arena and have done nothing but glorify themselves and the Nationals in everything they do.
The streamers you see at the top of the staff list the names of the previous winners of this award. We at Sports Network International are honored to present this banner to a single school each year that exemplifies the greatest ideals of JROTC on and off the competition floor.
