Through our program, we like to help our cadets in their life after high school. There are many JROTC scholarship opportunities:
In 2016-2017 our Dutch Fork JROTC Unit won Distinguished Unit with Merit during our mass inspection (above all the other schools in the area).
Our Unit has also raised the most money for Salvation Army during the Ringing of the Bells for 9 years straight out of all the schools that participate.
In our unit (SC-921) we have done many service events for each cadet to receive their service hours.
The following are some examples:
- USC Big Flags
- Color Guards
- Saber Teams
- Scare Hunger Can Drive
- Adopt A Highways
- Okra Strut Parade
- Veterans Day Parade
- Ringing of the Bells for Salvation Army
- Bataan Death March
There are also many field trips Cadets have a chance to go on:
- Parris Island
- SC State Museum and Armory Museum
- Universal in Orlando
- (summer trip) Cadet Leadership Course at Citadel
We also have a special flight for the seniors that have given 3 years to the program. X-Ray is full of AS4's (fourth year cadets) who work behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. With an averge of 12 students, these cadets are the top of the top. Their drive and ambition to help the program give them an honors credit in JROTC.
Top 3 Cadets in Senior Flight:
- Colonel Diamond Housey
- Lieutenant Colonel Cole Emerick
- Lieutenant Colonel Kyndal Robinson
