Two Los Alamos High School NJROTC shooters received their Junior Distinguished Shooter badges at the recent marksmanship banquet.

LCDR Wes Shumaker asked former LAHS shooter Jodi Cull-Host to pin the badges on senior Tessa Snyder and sophomore JoAnna O’Neill. Cull-Host was the first LAHS shooter to be awarded the badge, Snyder was the second, and O’Neill the third and youngest.

The Junior Distinguished Badge is awarded to school-age junior three-position air rifle shooters who distinguish themselves by attaining a series of high rankings in designated major junior air rifle championships that include State Junior Olympic Qualifiers, CMP Cup Matches, the National Junior Olympic Championships and other National Council Three-Position Air Rifle Championships.
