Marching, spinning rifles, precision movements, focus, and synchronization were on display Saturday at the University of Toledo while the Marion High JROTC drill and color guard team performed in their first competition of the year. In spite of it being the first competition ever for many of the Marion cadets, they still excelled to earn multiple top-place finishes.
Marion High School JROTC Cadet Levi Hofmann added another title to his growing list of achievements as an air-rifle marksman. Earlier this month, he and his teammates faced off against the best shooters from Indiana JROTC programs in Indianapolis at the JROTC State Rifle Marksmanship Championship. Hofmann turned in the second highest individual score to claim the Runner-Up State Champion title. Hofmann helped his Marion High teammates to finish third place overall as a team.
Questions have arisen over rumors of an alleged threat at Marion High School. Administrators investigated immediately upon hearing the rumor, and the allegation was found to be untrue. Based on this investigation we believe there is no threat to the safety of the students at Marion High School today. As is true every school day, we have a school security officer in the building. At no time did we believe students and staff were in danger.

On Nov. 19, educators from throughout the state of Indiana will be attending Red for Public Ed Action Day, a rally at the Indiana Statehouse. This rally is meant to communicate to our legislators the serious need for more financial and other support for public education and the children we serve. Public education has an important mission, which is to serve all the children of all the people. Our state is not adequately supporting this mission.
