LANIER JROTC

"MOTIVATING YOUNG PEOPLE TO BECOME BETTER CITIZENS"

  

The JROTC program prepares students for real life, scholarship opportunities and/or entry into the military. This program teaches discipline, dedication and responsibility. The program includes extra-curricular activities such as the Armed Drill Team, Unarmed Drill Team, Color Guard and many more. All of the teams compete in competitions and members of the teams earn a letter jacket after two years on the team.

JROTC Teams:
- Armed Drill Team: This team teaches cadets to march, spin rifles, and have fun. This team is for males and females.
- Unarmed Drill Team: Cadets learn to march, and routines with beats using their hands. It sounds complicated, but if you put in time, and effort, you can learn the routines well. On this drill team you do not have rifles. This team is for females and males.

- Color Guard: The color guard consists of two cadets with flags, and two cadets with rifles. The color guard team can be seen presenting the flags at the beginning of our football games. You will learn patience and precise movements if you decide to join this team.
