The Military Ball is being held this Friday, the 23rd. The ball will be at ChangePoint Church and is starting from 6pm to 11pm. For cadets who have rides, try to arrive at the ball around 5:45pm at the latest. And those that don't, a bus will be available for you and your guests. The bus will be at the poolside entrance, so please show up on time and get there no later than 4:30pm. And please behave and dress accordingly as the ball is a Formal Joint Event with the other JROTC programs. Cadets who are in uniform should remember to wear a white button up shirt with a black bowtie. For further information on the dress codes and regulations, please turn to the slideshow provided by our staff.
It's now wintertime! Cadets, it's essential to STAY VISIBLE AND AWARE when outside for your safety and others around you. Especially if you drive. Roads are icy. Stay Safe.
Support Our Extra-Curricular Competition Teams!
The Army JROTC program is free of charge to join the program.
Uniforms, marksmanship, and drill rifles cost nothing to use, and being on the competition teams that use them is free as well.
But the activities we strive to be part of are not.
Fee's for competitions and travel to and from these competitions come with a price tag.
Cadets are busy doing great things for their school and community and try really hard to conduct fundraisers.
If you are a fan of the program or are just interested in seeing these motivated young people change their and others' lives reach out to an instructor at the contact information located below or email us.
Email addresses are in the "About Us " link and select Instructor information and you will see all three awesome JROTC instructors.
Thanks for considering supporting a Cadet!
