After months of hard work and dedication, the Conway High School JROTC unit retains their status as an elite Honor Unit with Distinction for another year.
The JROTC scored 97.25% on their Accreditation Inspection, conducted by the 5th ROTC Brigade Staff on February 5th.
A unit must score 95% or above to be designated an Honor Unit with Distinction. They are awarded a Gold Star for the honor.
"This is particularly noteworthy since the standards are extremely tight and a unit must be nearly perfect on the inspection day," says Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Speck, Senior Instructor for the JROTC.
"This year’s inspection scoring rubric left little margin for error, requiring 95% or above to keep the gold star. Refusing to accept anything less than their best effort, our JROTC cadets proved that hard work and attention to detail paid off with exemplary results."
"The cadets did a fantastic job. Master Sergeant Stinson and myself could not be prouder of the job they did," says Speck.
