The Bogalusa Valedictory and Salutatory for Class of 2023 were members of the BHS JROTC Program. This is the third straight year that both top graduates were members of the Lumberjack Battalion. Rosa Martinez came to this country from Mexico because her Mother wanted a better life and future for her family. She shares this title with her brother Santos Martinez (Valedictory Class 2021 & 4 yrs. JROTC). She also earned the title of Student of the Year for her senior year. She had over a 4.0 GPA and was in JROTC for four years. Her last leadership role in the Battalion was as the BN S1 Adjutant. Her message to her fellow graduates was, “No matter where you are from with determination and a hardworking attitude you can accomplish your goals and dreams. She thanked JROTC for opening a door of new opportunities for her, new friends and another family that taught her many lessons along the way.
The Salutatory was Maria Luna and she is from Angie, Louisiana. She was also in JROTC for four years and had over a 4.0 GPA. Her last leadership role in the Battalion was as the BN S5 Public Affairs Officer. She shared this title with her sister Hannah Guy (Salutatory Class 2021 & 4 yrs. JROTC). Her future goals are entering the Active Army and serving her country.
We are very proud of our Senior Class 2023 and lucky to have these bright young ladies as part of our JROTC family. We wish them the best in their future endeavors and want them to know that they will always have a place here at Bogalusa HS JROTC Lumberjack Battalion.
