JROTC UNIT RECOGNIZED AS NAVAL HONOR SCHOOL

The Marine Corps JROTC unit at Granbury High School and Crossland Ninth Grade Center has been named a Naval Honor School. An honor school can send nominations to the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and the Military Academy at West Point.

The award also provides students who have a desire to join a service academy the significant advantage of earning recommendation letters from their JROTC instructors Lt. Col. Casey and First Sergeant Johnny Rositas who, under this award designation, carry just as much weight as a letter from a U.S. representative or senator.
