AFJROTC receives Outstanding Organization Award

Air Force JROTC Unit MO-20181 at Cape Central High School has been selected as one of 50 units to receive the 2019-2020 Air Force JROTC Outstanding Organization Award.  This award recognizes Air Force JROTC units that have performed well above and beyond normal expectations and have distinguished themselves through outstanding service to their school and community while meeting the Air Force JROTC citizen development mission for America.

The objectives of the Air Force JROTC program are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills, promote community service, instill responsibility, character and self-discipline through character education, and to provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.  Enrollment is open to high school students who are in the 9th to 12th grades. 

The program at Cape Central just finished its second year and started a new Air Rifle Marksmanship Team this year, competed in the nation-wide CyberPatriot Challenge, performed 25 color guards, and conducted two Awareness Presentation Events at Terry W. Kitchen Central Junior High and Central Middle schools.  The cadets also volunteered close to 650 hours of community service before school closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
