BHS Marine Corps JROTC Recognized as Naval Honor School for Second Year

Announced initially and bestowed upon the Bensalem MCJROTC at the beginning of this school year, the ceremony to officially hang the streamer to their unit colors was delayed as the JROTC awaited the return of former cadet Executive Officer and now U.S. Marine Corps Private First Class Alayna Schnorbus (BHS ‘22).  She graduated from Basic Training at Marine Recruit Depot, Paris Island, SC and has now returned home.
Alayna, together with last year’s Company Commander Jayden Fobbs of Holy Family University and former cadet staff Emily Maywhort attended the ceremony in the gymnasium at Bensalem High School on October 21, 2022.
Special thanks to Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick for attending today's ceremony and presenting the BHS MCJROTC with a flag that was flown over the U.S. Capital building.   
“Amazing job by the Bensalem Marine Corps JROTC cadets. Time and time again last school year, the cadets rose to the occasion, and we are so thankful that the cadets are now able to enjoy the fruit of their accomplishments. It was a nice cherry on top of what we considered a most successful year,” said Master Sergeant Shawn Worthen USMC (Ret.) - Leadership Studies - Marine Instructor.
Congratulations to Leadership Studies Department - Senior Marine Instructor/Marine Instructor Col John C. Church, Jr., USMCR (Ret.) and MSgt Shawn M. Worthen, USMC (Ret.) and our cadets!
