The mistress of ceremonies for the evening was Cadet Major Paola Arredondo, assisted by Cadet First Sergeant Cynthia Castillo. Everyone stood for the posting of the colors, commanded by Cadet Major Javier Robledo, along with the singing of the National Anthem by Cadet Captain Karina Paez. After the national anthem, Command Sergeant Major Jayden Kregel led the Pledge of Allegiance. The Battalion Commander took the podium with the blessing of the food.
Cadet Kregel then escorted row by row to get their food. The DHS Culinary Arts class prepared more than 250 meals featuring lemon pepper chicken, potato wedges with sautéed green beans, and a peach cobbler for dessert.

After all awards were given out, the seniors received cords for completion of the JROTC pathway alongside receiving plaques in recognition for their dedication to the program. The color guard then retired the colors and Cadet First Sergeant Cynthia Castillo closed the ceremony.
