U.S. Senator Jack Reed will visit Rogers High School on Friday, April 8 to congratulate the Newport Area Career and Technical Center (NACTC) JROTC program on earning reaccreditation with distinction.
Rogers High School NACTC JROTC program recently scored a 98% on their tri-annual accreditation, maintaining their Honor Unit with Distinction rating, according to Newport School Superintendent Colleen Burn Jermain’s April 6 Community update.
“Congratulations to all of our cadets and to JROTC program leader ‘Colonel’ (LTC, Retired) Chris Corbett! This is an unbelievable achievement- scoring in the top 10% of programs nationwide”, Jermain said in her community update. “This rating allows our cadets to apply to any of our academics such as Annapolis or West Point without having to gain a congressional nomination or recommendation. This is BIG! Great job RHS JROTC!”
Senator Reed will be joined by Newport JROTC cadets, JROTC officers, and Newport Public Schools leaders.
