South Rowan JROTC Cadet Dalton Gay Receives Medal of Honor

The South Rowan High School Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) conducted its annual Awards and Promotion Day on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

During the close of the standard presentation, Cadet Dalton Gay was called forward, recognized, and awarded the Medal for Heroism, the highest award given by the United States Army JROTC Cadet Command. He was awarded this award for his heroic actions taken in a desperate attempt to save the life of a hit and run victim in January 2022.

Cadet Gay was surprised to see his family and South Rowan Principal Dr. Amanda Macon arrive as part of the presentation. Cadet Gay’s older brother, Devin Gay, a third-year cadet in the U.S. Army Military Academy, was present via Facetime.

Devin is a former battalion commander of the South Rowan JROTC program and the recipient of the Legion of Valor/Bronze Cross for Achievement, the highest non-life saving award given to an Army JROTC cadet.

Dalton Gay was promoted to the rank of Cadet Lieutenant Colonel and will serve as the JROTC Battalion Commander for the upcoming school year.
