On Saturday, March 16, over a thousand cadets from each of the thirteen units within the San Diego Unified School District's Joint Brigade gathered for the annual Cadet Ball. Held at the Town and Country Hotel, these cadets began their night by enjoying a three-course meal and a speech from a keynote speaker recognizing and celebrating not only each of the thirteen school's successes and achievements, but also motivating them to go continue to strive for excellence. Cadets watched the Royal Court candidates represent their respective units as they walked under the Arch of Swords executed by the Joint Brigade Honor Guard.
We would like to thank everyone who made the event possible; from the Brigade Staff's diligent and rigorous planning, to each of the cadets' participation. We hope that those who attended had a memorable night and to see everyone again next year!
