JHS AFJROTC Wins Distinguished Unit Award
Our AFJROTC Dragon Group was notified by Headquarters AFJROTC Commander, Colonel Bobby Woods, that it was selected as a Distinguished Unit for the 2014-2015 school year. “This award recognizes the personal growth and accomplishments of the cadets, contributions of the instructors as mentors, and the support of the school and local community,” stated Colonel Woods, “Certainly numerous AFJROTC units are doing great things in their respective communities, but this unit truly represents the best of our 889 AFJROTC and NDCC units worldwide. The cadets, instructors, and schools are to be commended for earning this award.” This award recognizes those AFJROTC units that exceed personal growth. The units receiving this award demonstrate to their school and community that they are getting a great return on their investment in AFJROTC. Our AFJROTC Group is a well rounded group of young men and women. One of the key components of the award is the accomplishment of goals set and achieved by the cadets. The cadets meet together in September and set 6 goals for the school year; 2 goals are cadet focused, 2 are school centered, and the other 2 are community focused. One of the community focused goals was to accomplish 1300 hours of after school community service. The cadets blew this goal away by completing 1529 hours. Pictured are cadets leading the 1st Annual Jefferson Memorial Day Parade.
