  • The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), in collaboration with the Virginia Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, MADD Virginia, and Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, is pleased to provide Power of Parents, a brochure focused on preventing youth underage drinking. This brochure is for all parents of seniors to commemorate the senior year and preparation for graduation. Research indicates that parents are the key to preventing youth underage drinking, and teens are significantly less likely to drink if they have a parent who delivers a clear and consistent message that underage drinking is unacceptable. To further ensure our students have a safe and healthy senior yea, we are providing high schools across Virginia with critical brochures to support parent conversations with their seniors about underage drinking and DUI prevention.  More resources can be found at http://www.preventunderagedrinkingva.com/parents/index.html

  • The Bedford JROTC “Wolfpack” Raider Team traveled to Orange county to compete in an extreme physical fitness competition.  The competition began with a “Modified Army Physical Fitness Test.”  Cadets performed push ups, sit ups and a 1-Mile Run.  Immediately afterwards, the team ran a 3-Mile run as group while carrying a 20-pound sandbag.  Next, the team raced through a series of other tasks.  They Flipped a 300-pound tire through an obstacle course, assembled a 1-Rope Bridge to cross 40’ of open space, and finally, carried a simulated patient on a litter through a muddy course.  The team performed well overall, earning 4th place in a field of 19 teams.  This is remarkable considering the Bedford JROTC program was the smallest at the competition.  To put this in perspective, Bedford only has 30 cadets and competed with schools of over 150 cadets.   Of special note, Skylar Stanforth earned the “Best Male Physical Fitness Test” trophy for the highest individual test score.  Pictured above- The Bedford “Wofpack” team: Front row: J. Hensley, D. Moore, Bowers, C. Anderson, B. Harris; Back Row: S. Evans, J. Blackburn, R. Bible, S. Stanforth, L. Fafard, J. Elliott and LTC(R) Becker   Other Raider Team members not photoed were: E. Barrett, S. Branscome, J. Deel and J. Wardell.
