NJROTC conducts annual inspection at West High School

Established in 1972 by the Secretary of the Navy, the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps unit at Manchester High School West is celebrating more than 42 years of "can do" performance. NJROTC helps to develop strong and informed leaders for the future. The program's goal is to instill pride in our country, the Navy and the cadets as individuals. It encourages civic responsibility through participation in programs, projects and services within the school and local community. More than 2,500 hours of community service has been recorded so far this school year!

Today's inspection was conducted by Commander David Kenney and Chief Stanley Hannum. The morning's activities began early with a personnel inspection, which includes uniform, personal appearance and Navy knowledge. The inspection continued with a public ceremony that included remarks, a drill team performance, presentation of awards and a change in command for the 2015-16 school year.

Congratulations to all 103 cadets on a job well done.
