The NJROTC Program is an accredited curriculum through AdvancEd. That accreditation process occurs once every five years and the most recent visit was in October 2016. During that visit, they reviewed the results of the previous surveys and recommended that we perform that function annually in order to watch for trends and to provide for continuous program improvement. With that in mind, we would like to continue to collect feedback from our constituent groups. We have prepared a series of surveys which need to be taken by as many of these members as we can reach.
The Area 7 program manager for NJROTC announced last week that Dunedin High School NJROTC has been awarded the U.S. Navy’s Unit Achievement Award for the 2018/2019 school year. This award goes to only the top 30% of the 59 Navy JROTC units in Florida. Dunedin High school has earned the award for the THIRD year of the last 7 years. Dunedin NJROTC had an outstanding year. The NJROTC drill team participated in 4 drill meets this season with Color Guard, Basic, Armed Basic, Exhibition and Armed Exhibition drill teams. The drill teams competed in 3 sanctioned competitions and a Navy JROTC vs Marine Corps JROTC drill competition this year. Dunedin NJROTC participated in several successful extracurricular activities, including the Navy Military Ball, 3 air rifle matches, 3 orienteering meets and 3 Brain Brawl academic competitions. We have 13 seniors graduating this year 2 with the intent to serve and another 6 that have already enlisted in the military. This unit had some major accomplishments this year, first we completed over 2,300 hours of community service, conducted four separate blood drives collecting over 170 units of blood extending the lives of over 513 individuals. We supported Dunedin Cares Food Pantry with over 2,100 pounds of food in the fall, which amounted to 10% of their yearly total food collection. This year was the first time we exceeded the one ton food collection mark. We supported 3 Parades, Toys for Tots and 4 middle school mentoring days through Junior Achievement. Our Area Manager Inspection was conducted in January and we received an outstanding grade. These accomplishments combined with all our other Community Service, Academic, Drill and other activities our unit was awarded the UNIT ACHIEVEMENT AWARD for 2019. Every Cadet in good standing at Dunedin NJROTC will be awarded the Unit Achievement Ribbon.
