Every year ROTC has an inspection (the Area Manager’s Inspection) to test their knowledge on ROTC related information, such as uniform measurements, the Navy Chain of Command, and basic commands. By order of the Commander Naval Service Training Command (CNSTC), the Area 12 manager, Commander Rustie Hibbard, USN (Ret.) came down to complete his annual inspection (AMI). The unit spends hours preparing for the AMI, both in school and after school. Cadets have to prepare their uniforms exactly and shine their shoes to perfection. The inspection is very important for the cadets, as it counts as 4 grades for them, or about the equivalent of 2 assessments.

CDR Hibbard advised the unit, “Do not fail yourself, don’t ruin your future with a bad GPA.” Being lazy with schoolwork can easily drop a grade point average, which can mess up any future plans for colleges/careers.

“If you choose a military career, make sure you can fall back on that field in the civilian world” Hibbard followed up. Many cadets will end up joining the military after they finish high school, so it it important for those students to know how to be successful after their service.

At the end of the AMI, Bravo 2 was named “Honor Platoon” (platoon basically means class period) for all of Lee County. The Platoon leader for Bravo 2 is Erica Braswell (11), and the guide is Jacob Nichols (10).

The unit did a great job representing our county at their annual inspection.

Other Important Dates for Cadets:

  • November 18th-Hillgrove Academic Brain Brawl
  • December 9th- Jefferson Co STS
  • December 10th- Pearl Harbor Orienteering
  • December 10th- VA Hospital visit
