JROTC MISSION:  TO MOTIVATE YOUNG PEOPLE TO BECOME BETTER CITIZENS.

History:
The Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps came into being with the passage of the National Defense Act of 1916. The focus of JROTC was on secondary schools and was part of a national commitment by the Department of Defense to give back to the civilian community by supporting public education. Pekin Community High School has maintained a JROTC program since 1995. The unit currently is designated an Honor Unit with Distinction by U.S. Army Cadet Command.

Our Motto: "Marching In, The Fire is Within" Hooah!
