I am looking forward to the upcoming school year. With the beginning of this school year starting remotelyI’m sure you have many questions and concerns. I would like to assure you that we will make it through it and become better from having gone through this educational transformation.  

I'm glad you are interested in the JROTC program here at Vashon High School. I would like to take this moment to welcome our incoming freshmen and thank each returning cadet to the program. Vashon's Wolverines Battalion has an excellent reputation for its character and leadership development. 

I'm Sergeant First Class (Ret) Lorenzo Harris, who retired from the United States Army after 20 years of service. I began my JROTC career at Beaumont High School and joined the Wolverines family here at Vashon High School in SY 2011.

Teaching Philosophy: As an Army JROTC Instructor, I am very proud and thankful to have this opportunity to educate, inspire, develop, and prepare our cadets for future endeavors. I believe each cadet can and will succeed by applying those skills taught in JROTC, such as critical thinking, self-confidence, oral communications, leadershipteam building, decision making, problem-solving, and community service. All students must understand that education, along with opportunity, will provide them the best chance of achieving their goals.
