E.C. Glass Cadets Prepare for State Competition

Lynchburg, VA 0 The E. C. Glass Air Force JROTC cadets are working hard to perfect their presentations ahead of the state competition later this month. The cadets are going for their fourth title in a row.

Glass made history last year, becoming the first school to record three consecutive state titles. Their leaders say they have what it takes to make it five titles in a row.

"They need to be focused on the task at hand I tell them to begin with the end in mind. They need to be mentally ready and focus and if they take all of that and are focus that day. There is nobody that can touch them," said Senior Master Sergeant Donald Dougherty.

The cadets got some encouragement today from a former E.C. Glass student.

Master Sergeant Mayne served in WW Two as a B-26 tail gunner, flying more than 70 missions over enemy territory.

The cadets will head to the Virginia State Competitions in Richmond on April 27.
