CHS JROTC MAINTAINS ELITE HONOR UNIT STATUS
On Tuesday, February 12th, 2019, the Conway High School (CHS) Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Program received their Accreditation Inspection from the United States Army Cadet Command’s 5th Brigade Headquarters out of Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
The CHS JROTC scored 96.5%. A score of 95% or higher is required to earn the elite status of Honor Unit with Distinction. The inspection is a program requirement every three years. The Conway JROTC program has earned the top award at every inspection in the program’s 14 existence.
The 189 CHS cadets worked hard all this school year to prepare for the day– long program evaluation. All cadets must wear and maintain their dress uniform immaculately. They are also evaluated on their marching abilities, Color Guard precision, and curriculum knowledge. Finally, the cadet leadership must present two 45-minute briefings, the Continuous Improvement Program Briefing and the Service Learning Briefing. The Continuous Improvement Program Briefing is a presentation of how the cadets are working to improve some aspect of the CHS program. The Service Learning Briefing is a presentation on how the cadets apply their curriculum knowledge to activities in the community.
The JROTC program’s mission is “to motivate young people to be better citizens.” The CHS instructors are Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Speck, Command Sergeant Major Jennifer Broach, and First Sergeant Michael Colbert.
