On Saturday, January 29th, our JROTC "Tiger Battalion" competed in the 
West Point Drill Meet, held at Kaimuki High School. The "Tiger Battalion" performed
well and earned the "West Point Cup," over 10 other schools from Oahu and 
neighbor islands, for being the best overall unit. The West Point Cup lists all winners
 since 1956, and McKinley leads all other schools by winning the cup 24 times over
the past five decades. The West Point Cup may be viewed in the Main Office this week. 

The Armed Exhibition Team earned a first place trophy and so did our Armed Regulation Marching 
Team. Individual Awards for leadership were presented to Cadet Major Daniel Pajardo 
and Cadet Sergeant First Class Richard Tran for their outstanding leadership during the 

Following the West Point Drill Meet, the "Tiger Battalion" then took their marching skills to the
streets of China Town to participate in the China Town Parade. McKinley's "Tiger 
Battalion" was selected to lead the parade as the oldest and most prestigious public school 
JROTC Program in the state. The JROTC "Tiger Battalion" Armed and Unarmed 
Exhibition Teams then impressed the audience at the Vietnamese Festival on Sunday, 
January 30th, at Kapiolani Park, rounding out a successful weekend of proudly 
representing McKinley High School. (C/CPL Liang)
