What it means to serve

Students check out some of the ROTC gear Crosby brought for them

Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES teacher Rob Coatsworth’s 6:1:1 Behavior Management class at Churchville-Chili Middle School welcomed a special guest on Oct. 29. U.S. Army Major Ryan Crosby spoke with students about what it means to serve in the military, and answered many questions about life in the army. Crosby even brought his audience some cool Army ROTC Tiger Battalion gear from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) for them to keep, and was able to spend 1:1 time with some of them. 

The visit was facilitated by classroom psychologist Ann-Marie DePeters, who contacted Crosby, who is a professor of military science and the director of Army ROTC at RIT. Although this was his first time speaking with our students, he was clearly a great hit. The kids loved his presentation! They now have a much better understanding of the sacrifices military members make in service of our country.
