As a JROTC cadet you are embarking on one of the most interesting and valuable educational experiences of your high school career. In JROTC you will be given the chance to participate in your education and learn to be a better citizen. The program provides you with skills you can use to succeed in high school; but far more importantly, these skills will be useful for the remainder of your life.
