A Tulsa high school's junior ROTC program has earned a top honor.
Tulsa Union's Air Force ROTC has been selected to represent Oklahoma in the presidential inaugural parade on Jan. 21.
"This is a great, great honor for us to be able to represent the state and we hope that those out there that are watching this will feel that this is great honor and the state is well represented," said retired Lt. Col. Ron McCool.
The group now has two weeks to raise $40,000 for the trip.
