MMA Cadets Recognized

HARLINGEN, Texas–Eleven cadets from Marine Military Academy were recognized during the regularly scheduled City Commission Meeting of September 19, 2018. The recognition is a result of their volunteerism at the Harlingen Recycling Center in late August.


Under the direction of Sgt. Major Ford Kinsley, the cadets spent one day at the recycling center and managed to produce one and a half bales of shredded paper, one bale of shrink plastic wrap, and one bale of plastic number one water bottles.  They also sorted through forty-two 96-gallon recycling containers weighing about 100 pounds apiece.  All together that’s about 2.1 tons of recyclable materials.


And as if that wasn’t enough, they also swept and cleaned the entire Recycling Center.  Cadet Maxwell Fortin and Sgt. Major Kinsley attended the City Commission Meeting and accepted the printed recognitions.

Way to go MMA Cadets.  The City of Harlingen salutes you!
