Sussex Technical High School has welcomed First Sergeant Timothy Spence as the newest member of the JROTC teaching team.
First Sergeant Spence, graduate of Seaford High school in 1992, retired after 20 years from the U.S. Army. He taught senior ROTC at North Carolina A&T State University and volunteered his time to work with high school students as part of the military's PIE (Partners in Education) program on his last assignment in El Paso, Texas,
“I want to bring excitement for JROTC to the students,” 1SGT Spence said. “I want them to understand that JROTC is not just about guns and ammo. It can also give youth the skills needed to
better themselves in society.”
