MARYSVILLE – Mayor Jon Nehring proclaimed May 9 Dave Rose Day within the city at a recent ceremony at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.

Rose, the M-P principal, is retiring at the end of the school year. The mayor’s proclamation was based on Rose’s lifelong commitment to the city and the Marysville School District.

At the event, Rose presented a Distinguished Unit Award to the Marysville NJROTC program. The award is only earned by units in the top 20% nationwide. Maekyla Bonifacio of Marysville Getchell was awarded Cadet of the Year, and Sean LeSpade of MTC earned Senior Cadet of the Year. Twenty-two seniors were recognized. Two earned $500 scholarships from the NJROTC Booster Club. Six students are moving on to college, six have enlisted in the military, five are going to community college, four are going into the workforce, and one is going on a 1 1/2 year mission. Twenty-seven organizations gifted cadets with various awards for academic, citizenship and leadership accomplishments. MG principal Richard Zimmerman was recognized by the Navy as an outstanding educator. During the last school year, cadets amassed over 2,500 hours of community service and 200 hours of school service. They collected items and money to support Marysville Food Bank; Operation Marysville Community Christmas; provided assistance to Marysville schools; and adopted a street in Marysville. The NJROTC Color Guards participated in over 80 events including sporting events for the Everett Silvertips, along with the Seattle Mariners and Sounders. Students competed in Orienteering, Drill, Color Guard, Marksmanship, Athletic and Academics against other JROTC groups in Oregon and Washington. The teams were invited to Regionals and three of the four placed. Their new Cyber Patriots teams were the most successful of all, competing in Cyber Security and Computer Networking. This is their first year, and one of the teams placed first in state and made the semifinals nationally.
