Welcome to the 84th Army JROTC Battalion and the 2020-21 School Year! My name is Master Sergeant Dom Vidrine (US Army Retired) and I will be the Instructor for all new Cadets to the East Duplin High School JROTC Program. Cadets in Years 2-4 will be taught by COL(R) Mark Hendrick.
Firstly, I want to congratulate you for making the decision to take this course. I know you will learn a lot of new things and also grow as an individual in this unique program. Due to Covid-19 we will begin this year learning remotely, so it is VERY IMPORTANT that you stay in CONTACT with me and respond to all assignments and communication.
With that being said, here is my contact information below.

I will check my email and voicemail daily, so please feel free to leave a message. Also, once school is up and running, I will post my designated office hours that are good times to contact me via phone.
We will use the CANVAS Learning Management System (LMS) as our platform for all ONLINE INSTRUCTION. More details will follow on how to open/access that account later next week. You will have daily work assigned and instructions on how to turn that work in.
