Zach Thelen Receives Prestigious Legion of Valor Award

Caddo Magnet senior Zach Thelen has been awarded the prestigious Legion of Valor Award by the Army JROTC. This program recognizes cadets worldwide who have demonstrated excellence in military, scholastic, and civic affairs. Of the more than 305,000 cadets participating in the Army JROTC program worldwide, only 29 cadets were approved for the award in 2020.

Leadership comes naturally to Zach, who has risen to the rank of Battalion Commander of the Caddo Magnet High School ROTC unit. An active member of our ROTC Raider team for the past three years,  Zach also represented CMHS at Louisiana Boys’ State this past summer and is a member of our school’s Cyber Patriot Team, Drone Club, Engineering Club and Sci-Fi Club. Zach has also achieved a 35 on his ACT!

Congratulations to Zach for this great honor!
