  • Sergent Major Christopher SotoMy name is Master Sergeant Christopher Soto and I am happy to be part of the Air Force JROTC TX-20091 family that services students from both Cypress Woods High School and Cypress Ranch High School.  After serving almost 25 years in the United States Air Force, being stationed all over of the world and retiring from the Air Force in 2011 my passion now is developing young people into citizens of character through the core values of  "Integrity", "Service Before Self" and Excellence in All You Do".
