JROTC Achieve Honor Unit With Distinction

Published

on

The Monroe County Technical Center and James Monroe High School’s JROTC Maverick Battalion has earned the title of Honor Unit with Distinction by the Department of Defense’s United States Army Cadet Command.
This distinction came as a result of scoring a 99.25% on a JROTC Program of Accreditation (JPA) evaluation, an in-depth inspection that JROTC programs are subjected to every three years and ultimately determines if a school is permitted to retain its JROTC program or not.
The JPA categories evaluated were individual portfolios, personality traits, learning style inventories, team building methodologies, drill and ceremonies, and color guard duties. The evaluation also included two very detailed cadet-led presentations. One was a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP) briefing whereby cadets focused upon individual and unit physical fitness observations, mitigation, and percentage of improvements over time. The other was a community-oriented Service Learning Project (SLP), which focused on different ways of actively honoring our local veterans.
Both the CIP and SLP briefings were planned and executed by the cadets and offered opportunities to identify a problem, develop courses of action, analyzing different courses of action, choose a course of action, plan, and execute tasks to achieve workable solutions.
We are proud of these young people as they demonstrated their ability to think critically and objectively while working individually and within a team to achieve success.
Today was a culmination of two school years of hard work so if you see these young people out and about, please tell them congratulations!
If you know of a young person who is looking for a good personal growth challenge, with opportunities to learn leadership, team building, personal finances and budgeting, land navigation, marksmanship, first aid, civics, history, public speaking and much more, please send them to talk to their guidance counselors at James Monroe High School or Major Todd Longanacre and Master Sergeant Mike Wiley at the Monroe County Technical Center.
