(NEWS CENTER)-- Zoe Petit from Massabesic High School is about as competitive as they get and she does not play sports. At least not in the traditional sense. Petit is the commanding officer for her schools Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Program. She earned a Varsity Letter for her work on the drill team which practices 2 hours a day after school and competes against 8 other teams across New England.
Petit is not planning on going into the military after high school. She hopes to go to Dartmouth and says she will miss wearing the NJROTC uniform. "People say it's uncomfortable, and ya, maybe but I am representing people like my dad, and the United States military and that means a lot to me. And I get to show all that I've done."
If you know someone who would be a good varsity club candidate, have a teacher or coach or school administrator send the nominations in to Varsity Club at wcsh6.com or Varsity Club at wlbz2.com. We will feature a new inductee each week and at the end of the year one girl and one boy will be chosen to receive a 2500 dollar scholarship in memory of Bruce Glasier, the pioneer of the Varsity Club.
