Squadron 50 cadets participated for the 9th straight year in the Modesto Fourth of July Parade. While in attendance at the flag raising ceremony, they were asked to step in and raise the American flag by Modesto Vice-Mayor Tony Madrigal. Despite no previous warning or practice, Squadron 50 cadets quickly sprung to action and took over the ceremony. The festivities were kicked of by City Councilwoman Jenny Kenoyer, wife of former Squadron 50 member in the 50’s. We learned that she was the first female cheerleader at Modesto High School as she demonstrated the original cheer she created back in the day.
