7 in a row: SCHS ROTC honored for stellar performance


Air Force Junior ROTC at Sandy Creek High continues its tradition of excellence. The unit has been selected as one of 80 to receive the 2010-2011 Air Force Junior ROTC Outstanding Organization Award.

This marks the seventh year the unit has received the award since the program started at Sandy Creek nine years ago. Recipients must demonstrate that they have performed above normal expectations, and distinguished themselves through outstanding service to their school and community while meeting the Air Force Junior ROTC mission of producing better citizens for America.

“The cadets this year worked very hard to earn this recognition by accomplishing all the cadet goals, showing leadership within the school, and in supporting activities benefitting the local community,” said Colonel Doug Pearson, senior aerospace science instructor.
