The Mission of JROTC is to develop young people to be better citizens. Since 1982 CMHS JROTC Mustang battalion has provided character and leadership education to thousands of students to accomplish this goal. JROTC is open to all students (no fees) regardless of grade level, and there is no military obligation for participation.
The structure of our 4 year program is: first year cadets are LET I's, second year are LET II's, third year LET III's and fourth year are LET IV's. Many students will take just the first two years of the program which replaces the high school Health & PE requirement. We also sponsor a tutoring program to assist students with their academic subjects.
Each Veteran's Day we conduct a traditional Pass-in-Review ceremony while recognizing the service and sacrifices of our nation's veterans. The highlight of this event is the recognition of local veterans who have provided selfless service to our nation in peace and war. School involvement includes Great Expectations, Back to School Night, Community Parades, Drill Competitions, Varsity Marksmanship, Open House, Student Testing, and Christmas caroling. We conduct the Spring Formal, better known as the Military Ball. This event is considered the highlight of the year.
Since 1982, nine CMHS cadets have been selected for the highest honor bestowed, The Legion of Valor award. This award is presented to 1 out of 3,000 cadets nationwide. In 2007 c/LTC Brittany Jackson was selected and the award presented to her by Major General Montague Winnfield at the Awards Dinner at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. School fundraising events are designed to support program's events and team trips, participation is strictly voluntary and directly supports participating cadets.
Our goal is for every student to attend college. We have teamed up with www.collegeoptionsfoundation.net to assist students when applying for college.
