Lawton Junior ROTC celebrates 44th annual ball

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - Thursday night at the Hilton Garden Inn, the Junior ROTC programs from all three Lawton high schools gathered to celebrate their 44th annual ball.

Each year, the schools switch who hosts, and it was Macarthur's turn tonight.

The JROTC ball was in celebration of all three schools maintaining Gold Star awards during the JROTC accreditation. Members of the JROTC along with their guests dressed up in formal wear, and celebrated the night in style.

“It’s one of the only events that Lawton Public Schools has that all three high schools come together that is not in competition. So it’s a night of unity, it’s a night of fun, friendship and of course food," said Major. Craig Redfearn, Macarthur senior Army instructor.
