Incine High JROTC earns top honors for 33rd straight year
Special to the Bonanza
Members of the Incline High School JROTC program had an impeccable performance in the 33rd JROTC Program Accreditation (JPA) on Wednesday, March 16.
The JPA took the place of the annual Cadet Form Inspection (CFI), which Incline High School has participated in for the past 32 years.
The culmination event of the year took place in the JROTC building, where the cadets participated. The accreditation chief inspector was LTC Scott Maryott, the Director of Army Instruction (DAI) for the Washoe County School District.
The Highlander Battalion passed the JPA with a score of 97.8%, adding one more “Honor Unit with Distinction” award for the 33rd year in a row, and maintaining the Incline JROTC program within the top five percent in the nation.
To start things off, the Highlander Battalion Staff and other cadets welcomed the Inspectors and introduced them to their principal, Mrs. Hermann.
After being welcomed, the Cadet Battalion Commander, Cadet Training and Operations, and Public Affairs Officers gave a briefing on the JROTC Service Learning and the Deputy Commander and Executive Officer gave a briefing of the battalion’s Continuous Improvement.

After the briefings were over, the staff officers were inspected in their individual staff positions this inspection consisted of cadet knowledge, personal appearance (uniform), and drill and ceremony
All companies were assessed in the week’s prior information as well as a four person color guard.
