The Cadet Creed

I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet.


I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of Cadets.


 I am loyal and patriotic. I am the future of the United States of America.


  I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.


 I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.


 I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.


I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.


May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed

Community Service

With COVID 19 being a real challenge, JROTC Cadets may be able to find opportunities for community service with agencies who need phone help or delivery assistance. If you are currently conducting or are looking for Community Service tell your instructor so you and the battalion can receive credit for it.

   Doing Flag Detail Duty

Every morning at 7:15 AM Thunderbird cadets are tasked with raising our nation's and state's colors. Do your part as leaders and conduct this distinguishing duty with pride and professionalism. Duty Rosters are posted in all three classrooms. Get there early in the morning and check for your name weekly.
