Bangor High School’s JROTC program was recently designated an “Honor Unit with Distinction” by the U.S. Army Cadet Command.
Following an extensive inspection, the Battalion scored a 95% across ten inspected areas. 2015 was the last time the Battalion was awarded this distinction.
Each school that has an HUD JROTC program is recognized on a higher level to all colleges or universities that have a senior ROTC program. Students applying from these schools are given extra consideration for acceptance.
The Senior Army Instructor can also recommend and provide a student from their school a nomination letter to one of the Armed Services Academies. This is equivalent to a recommendation from a Senator or Congressman. There are 35 slots reserved in each academy for students coming from a school that has a HUD classification.
Any student from a high school that has an HUD JROTC program can include this on their resume for employment. The Cadets worked very hard to attain this distinction.
We are very proud of them!
