WHAT WE DO
The Hawk Battalion is committed to serving our community, locally and nationally. Cadets have organized and participated in all sorts of activities supporting the community. In this picture, cadets are helping the Salvation Army with the Angel Tree Program. The program provides gifts of new clothing and toys to thousands of children who otherwise might not have anything for Christmas.
Cadets practice patriotisim both in and out of the classroom. Love of the nation means honor and respect of the nation's flag and its values. Part of JROTC is learning about these values, how they can be applied, and why they matter.
Although we spend a lot of time working with our Cadets on becoming better citizens, we also take time to have fun. We have a number fieldtrips we plan each year. Some past things we have done include kayaking, touring college campuses, 5k races, and more.
It seems today that we need more leaders who will step up and take the action that needs to be taken. JROTC helps teach our young people about what it means to lead and how to lead. We put young people into leadership environments in the classroom and during projects working with the community. We take pride in teaching young people what it means to lead and why it's important.
JROTC helps shape young people in to the best citizens they can be through classroom instruction and community outreach. Some of the things cadets learn are citizenship skills, their roles as American citizens, the citizenship action group process, and American history.
