U.S. Navy Lt. Paul Tidd has finally come “home.” Tidd recently took command of the Navy Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps unit at Uvalde High School.
Tidd was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Florida is his home state. But he’s quickly adapting to the Uvalde community.
“The people in Uvalde have been so welcoming. I immediately felt at home here. After 33 years of moving around in the military, I want to be home.”
Tidd reported to UHS from his most recent assignment at the Naval Technical Training Center at the Joint Base-San Antonio-Lackland, where he trained law enforcement and corrections personnel for the U.S. Navy.
He joins Chief Brad Brantley to direct the operations of the UHS NJROTC. Tidd has a global perspective about the role of a student military-associated group like the UHS program.
“NJROTC is intended to instill personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment. My hope is that our students realize their worth, embrace challenges and never give up on their dreams.”
