Enloe High School still has a chance to get a U.S. Army Junior ROTC program, but it didn't come without a fight this evening.
By a 5-2 vote, the Wake County school board voted to allow Enloe to request the JROTC program in hopes of starting it for the 2011-12 school year. There's no guarantee that Enloe will get the program, but the school board could have killed the application or delayed it.
The issue, according to school board members Deborah Prickett and John Tedesco, was one of equity as they stressed they both support JROTC programs.
School board member Chris Malone says he used to be in the ROTC when he was in school.
