 2022-2023 School Year for Army JROTC

Starting off the new year, our cadets are getting prepared for the big inspection in March! Every day we are working to improve our program so we can keep our gold star. This star is on every cadet's uniform, representing our honor unit with distinction. If we conduct a proper inspection while meeting all the requirements, we get to keep our star and continue marching our way through the year!

On January 21 at Waynesville Missouri, our Drill team had their second competition this season. Our highest placed score was our Armed team, being in 12th place out of 25! Followed by that was both our unarmed and color guard! They received 16th place out of 25. Our next two competitions are on February 25th in Leavenworth Kansas, and March 18th in Waukegan Illinois. We are so proud of our drill team for conducting a successful competition, and using the rest of this year to work hard and accomplish more in the future!

This also announces our first rifle competition of the year! The Rifle team competed against Rockford on Saturday, January 28th. Two members of our team, Alaina Nehmelman and Braydon Call, both got invited to compete at regionals in Camp Perry Ohio. This will take place the 9th-12th of February. We're very excited to see how far our rifle team goes, and we wish luck to both our cadets in regionals!

JROTC is so proud of how this year is moving forward, and we can't see what the rest of 2023 holds for us.
