Monroe Neal Speaks to JROTC Cadets

A “hometown boy” returned to the area this week to hopefully inspire cadets in the Wayne County High School JROTC program.  Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Monroe Neal spoke to cadets in the program. Neal, the son of Joanna Neal and the late Monroe Neal, Sr., graduated from WCHS in 1992. He played on the basketball team that went to Jackson, and later graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1996.

He served twice in Iraq, and now works in Washington D.C. at the Pentagon. He told students that they can  reach any goal despite their background or the circumstances they may find themselves in right now. “Don’t allow your current situation or your past to dictate your future,” he said. “You can pretty much do  whatever you want in life, as the opportunities are endless and there is always hope.  “You are in the right place at the right time in your life, which is being in school. Education is the tool you can  use to get where you want to be in life.”
