Culpeper Star-Exponent: Spanberger lauds Woodbridge High JROTC team


On the floor of the U.S. House Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-7th, recognized the Woodbridge High School JROTC VEX robotics team as it prepares to compete in the 2023 JROTC National Championship in Dallas, Texas this month.

In its inaugural year, the JROTC team earned an invitation to compete in the national competition. Spanberger congratulated the team, wished them luck in their upcoming competition and touted this achievement as an example of the strength of Virginia’s JROTC cadets, instructors and families.

“In its very first year of existence, this team has already earned an invitation to compete against teams across the country. After a season of climbing the rankings, quickly learning about the skills needed to win and placing in statewide competitions, their hard work has paid off,” the congresswoman said in remarks in Congress. “Woodbridge High’s team is the only JROTC VEX robotics team in the entire Commonwealth. Today, they are not only making Woodbridge proud — but they’re making all Virginians proud.

“These Virginia cadets overcame the odds. Their determination, their innovation and their ability to rise above adversity makes them fierce competitors — and it puts them on a pathway to success as future leaders of our communities, our Commonwealth, and our country.”
