Johnson JROTC earns trip to Washington, D.C.

The Johnson High School JROTC Leadership Team has advanced to the National JROTC Leadership Symposium in Washington, D.C. The team, consisting of four students in grades nine through 11, will attend the symposium June 26-30.


All expenses are paid by the United States Army Cadet Command (USACC).  The team was selected on the basis of their knowledge of leadership tenets from George C. Marshall, their understanding of JROTC Leadership Theory and their ability to translate those tenets and theories to scenario-based questions during two on-line preliminary rounds of testing.


The team competition included working knowledge of Winning Colors, Thinking Maps and the Classroom Performance System. Forty-eight leadership teams were selected from more than 1,600 eligible units across the nation. The symposium will be conducted at George Mason University under the supervision of USACC and executed by the College Options Foundation with assistance of Sygnetics, Inc., the  George C. Marshall Foundation and the State Information Technology Consortium.


In addition to participating in the symposium activities, the participating Johnson cadets will have opportunities to visit notable D.C. sites, such as the Pentagon and Capitol.
