News from our NJROTC

Hey Warrior Nation,

Our NJROTC cadets have done some exciting things in the past two weeks! As the school year comes to a close, we have had some of our most eye opening end of the year events. Last friday, April 21st, we held our annual military ball at the Hunter Club at the Hunter Army Airfield where cadets had a blast.

On April 27th, we held our Annual Awards Ceremony where we had important guests from different veterans organizations give out special awards to a select few cadets who proved themselves this school year! And, we also introduced some of our new cadet staff for the 2023-2024 school year, as we say goodbye to our seniors.

Our unit also got the Unit Achievement award which is a huge accomplishment and milestone for our cadets.

The following are some amazing pictures from the Award Ceremony
