Science Hill High School’s Junior ROTC program recently earned Honor Unit with Distinction.
The hard-to-attain honor is given every three to five years when experts inspect every detail of the the program.
Science Hill’s principal presented the Star of Excellence to each cadet Wednesday afternoon.
“It’s a representation of our success and a way to grade ourselves against all the other nation’s battalions,” said JROTC cadet Michael Poole.
Science Hill’s JROTC program began in 1936, making it one of the oldest in the state.
