Region 8 ROTC members visit retirement home

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A group of Region 8 students decided to spend part of their Wednesday visiting with senior citizens.

Twenty-two cadets with the Greene County Tech Junior ROTC participated in "Adopting a Grandparent."

The students spoke to residents of the Green Acres retirement home in Paragould.

GCT junior and ROTC member Myranda Boardman said she enjoys visiting with people and believes it would be beneficial for other students to do the same.

"Let them enjoy talking to other people and it will give them a chance to learn about some things in the past and see what people have been through," Boardman said.

They plan to visit with the residents again at Easter.
