NJROTC

NEW ALBANY NJROTC ONE OF THE TOP PROGRAMS IN THE COUNTRY

NAHS NJROTC 16-17
The New Albany High School Navy Junior ROTC program was established in 1981 and has since grown into one of the top programs in the country. New Albany NJROTC Unit has received the Navy Distinguished Unit Award (with Academic Honors) for the 11th consecutive year! In fact, we have received this End of Year Award in 12 of the last 15 years. This places our cadets and program at the very top with the best programs in the country! Additionally in 2009, they received the Navy League “Most Outstanding Unit Award” placing New Albany in the top ten in the country out of 550 schools nationwide! Having a very large and diverse cadet enrollment, the Unit’s consistent success on the local, regional and national level is attributed to the outstanding cadet leadership, teamwork and strong ability for all cadets to work together towards achieving common Unit goals. Their 5 competitive teams: Rifle, Drill, Color Guard, Physical Training and Academic team are teaching tools for the Cadets to put into practice the Leadership and teamwork skills they learn in class. These teams have been competing on the national level for the last 10 years with amazing success!

In 2013, the New Albany Precision Rifle Team was the Navy National Champion out of 580 schools nationwide! This year was extremely successful beginning with a perfect 10-0 record in the local Kentuckiana Rifle Association League and winning the overall Championship! Nationally, they were the number one team in the country on the Secretary of the Navy Rifle competition. In the Navy Nationals, they came in 2nd place just missing another National Championship by 5 points! Advancing to the All-Service Nationals and competing against the best Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force schools in the country, they were the top Navy school and wound up 6th in the nation out of 3000 JROTC schools across the country!

In 2014, the Drill Team and Color Guard earned a nomination to the Navy Nationals in Pensacola, Florida, and this year will be returning to the All-Service National competition in Dayton Beach going up against the best schools in the country. This makes 3 out of the last 5 years that Drill Team and Color Guard have been competing at the National level! Academic Team has done extremely well on the NJROTC National Academic Exam competition being in the top 15% in the country last year and continued that success again this year. The team also won multiple trophies at local and regional events.

Overall academic success and advanced education has become a staple of the New Albany NJROTC program. In the last 5 years, there have been 5 Cadets who received ROTC Scholarships. Also, 5 Rifle Team Cadets have received the Civilian Marksmanship Program Scholarship with some of those cadets now competing on college Varsity Rifle Teams. Additionally, they also received scholarships from their respective schools. However, this year has been the absolute very best for New Albany NJROTC Cadet academic achievement and scholarships received!

The stated goal of the NJROTC program is to develop productive future citizens for our community, state and country. New Albany High School NJROTC has established a long tradition of former cadets utilizing the life skills and character traits learned in the program and applying them towards achieving success later in life. Former cadets like Josh Johantgen, who is now a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and Presidential Support Detail.
