The Methuen Exchange Club recognized four Methuen High JROTC students who will be entering the military after graduation. The seniors were recently honored during a dinner at the Irish Cottage.

Ethan Guide will join the Air Force JROTC while attending Gordon College. He said his great-grandfather was a ball turret gunner in the Air Force and he is proud to follow in his footsteps.

Brian LaTouch will be enlisting in the Air Force. He too was proud to say both his great-grandfather and grandfather were in the Air Force.

Marcell Kekedi enlisted in the Air Force and Allison Pacas will join the Army. They were unable to attend the dinner.

Exchange Club member Brad Jones said, “We feel it is important to honor these young people that are making a commitment to serve our country’s Armed Forces. Wherever they end up in life, we want them to remember that the city they called ‘home’ cared.”
