The Page High Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (JROTC) was named an Honor Unit of Distinction after passing its JROTC Program of Accreditation review earlier this month.
Every three years, the U.S. Army Cadet Command reviews every JROTC unit. Three Page High JROTC cadets rose to the occasion and began planning activities throughout the year in order to meet the review’s requirements. Cadet Lt. Col. Madison Haack and her team, Cadet Maj. German Schwartz and Cadet Command Sgt. Maj. Harper Biggs, took charge of the planning.
The inspection happened at the beginning of April. Every aspect of the unit was observed, including drill and color guard performances, service projects, continuous improvement projects and interviews with both cadets and instructors.
At the end of the inspection, the unit’s score was high enough to earn it the Honor Unit of Distinction Award.
“They were excited to hear they received 98 out of 100 points,” Page High JROTC instructor Col. Eric Goslowsky said. “Page High’s cadet leadership met this challenge head-on.”
