Suitland, MD (June 13, 2017): Andrews Federal Credit Union recently sponsored the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers (SHAPE) Europe High School Air Force JROTC when they traveled to Ramstein, Germany to compete in the Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) Europe drill team championship. 

JROTC units from several DODEA schools participate in the yearly competition.  The Cadet Commanders’ Lt. Col. John Petrovich and Lt. Col. Renee Arias led their unit to victory once again, bringing their winning streak to five years in a row.  Both Petrovich and Arias are graduating this year; however, they are leaving their unit in the very capable hands of the next generation of JROTC leadership.

“It is a pleasure to be able to support students and especially the members of JROTC,” said Andrews Federal’s Joshua Barrett, Chievres Branch Manager.  “I am very proud of their hard work and the award is only a visual example of the effort and energy they put in to JROTC.”
