 Mission Statement/Purpose

 

The Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps or JROTC at Wossman is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to community, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork, and self-discipline. Its focus is reflected in its mission statement, "To motivate young people to be better citizens." It prepares high school students for responsible leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens. The program is a stimulus for promoting graduation from high school, and it provides instruction and rewarding opportunities that will benefit the student, community, and nation. All students can take the course for one to four years.

 

The JROTC program intends to teach cadets to:

  • Appreciate the ethical values and principles that underline good citizenship.
  • Develop leadership potential, while working cooperatively with others.
  • Be able to think logically and communicate effectively with others.
  • Appreciate the importance of physical fitness in maintaining good health.
  • Understand the importance of high school graduation for a successful future, and learn about college and other advanced education and employment opportunities.
  • Develop mental management abilities.
  • Become familiar with military history as it relates to America's culture, and understand the history, purpose, and structure of the military services.
  • Develop the skills necessary to work effectively as a member of a team.
