The John Tyler JROTC cadets recently had their formal Color Guard Evaluation and Army In Ranks Inspection. The evaluation and inspection is conducted by the Army and covers nearly every aspect of a school’s JROTC program, highlighting general knowledge questions, as well as questions on various cadet and army ranks, guidelines and more. The inspection is required in order to keep JROTC active status.
JROTC students scored high in drill, in-ranks inspection, color guard performance, and individual interviews. The battalion received a rating of Proficient. The proficient scoring or rating is considered high when compared to the more than 1,700 JROTC units in the United States.
Three John Tyler cadets, Sha Quela Choice, Yadira Olivarez, and Alondra Castillo, received the Department of Army’s DA Superior Cadet Award, which is the second highest cadet award and based on performance by LET (grade) level. Cadets were presented medals by Mr. Schapatone, US Army Cadet Command, 5th Brigade.
