Congratulations to the AFNORTH Junior ROTC Corps of Cadets!  They underwent an AF JROTC Headquarters inspection just before the Easter break and did exceptionally well.  The cadets reviewed all the regulations, prepared a Mission Briefing, practice their Drill and ran comprehensive checklists to ensure complete success.  The Corps was ready…and the inspector found no discrepancies or procedural “findings”.  This resulted in a grade of “Exceeds Standards”, the highest evaluation attainable. 

Led by senior cadets Sabrina Durrell and Melany Macauley – the Corps earned top marks in all their graded measurements.  The entire cadet Corps performed exceptionally well in all aspects of the inspection, and took great pride in accomplishing their individual and unit goals. Not only did they achieve the highest inspection grade possible, the unit was designated as a “Distinguished Unit, With Merit”.  Only the top 1 percent of all Junior ROTC units achieve this annual recognition.

Their instructors, Col (Ret) Ray Robidoux and SMSgt (Ret) Dennis Parise created a dynamic and supportive learning environment along with an outstanding community outreach program.  They also provided exceptional mentorship and leadership in administering their JROTC program. The AFNORTH High School cadet citizenship program is making a significant impact on the school, the cadets and the community. 

Again, congratulations to each and every cadet on a job well done!
