NORTH PORT, FL (WWSB)- The North Port High School ROTC honored retiring Police Chief Kevin Vespia today.
They don’t normally invite guests to their annual military inspection parade, but a lot of them say they look up to Vespia. “He’s been my personal role model,” said Dillon Stover, who’s part of the ROTC at North Port High.
Stover also adding that ROTC prepares them for life outside of school, and a lot of students see improvement in grades once they join the club.
Chief Vespia has spoken to the ROTC class in years past, advising them that “they can do anything they set their minds to.” And reminding them to “turn negative energy into positive energy and use that to work towards their goals.”
