Two North Valleys High School Students get Class Act Award

There are two amazing Junior ROTC cadets that follow the Air Force motto to a tee,

--Integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.--

This month they are both News Four's Class Act Award Winners!

Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan surprised Cadet Tyler Gentry and Cadet Juan Velasquez yesterday in their class at North Valleys High School.

These two young men are seniors this year and have left quite a mark at their school and in our community.

Not only have they dedicated hundreds of hours to community service projects, they have also spearheaded new ones! Tyler led a new service called "Operation Panther Express" between the high school and Obrien and Cold Springs Middle Schools and somehow also managed to play varsity basketball for the Panthers.

In addition to football and track, Juan took charge on a partnership with the Reno Fire Department helping families in need over the holidays.

Both students credit the Air Force J-ROTC program at North Valleys for their desire to help the community on a big scale.

Juan is waiting to hear if he will attend Mississippi State in the fall and Tyler received a congressional nomination to attend the United States Air Force Academy. News Four will keep you posted on where these two outstanding young men end up!

Congratulations to Cadets Gentry and Velasquez, Class Act Award Winners!
