Superintendent’s Trophy Awarded to Broadmoor High JROTC Cadets

May. 25 2016

The Army Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps is an Army sponsored Academic and Citizenship program offered in nine high schools in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.   JROTC is a technology based instructional program that promotes citizenship, leadership, character development, health and physical fitness.

An intricate part of our leadership and character development is promoting healthy competition in the areas of leadership, drill, marksmanship, academic bowls, essay writing and physical fitness.  Our cadets participating in our integrated-curricular activities must maintain a GPA of 2.0 and with no disciplinary problems.  The cadets practice after school and compete on weekends.  The East Baton Rouge JROTC sponsors district drill meets and marksmanship competitions, a district physical fitness competition, and four cadet leadership boards to select the Cadets of the Year at each academic level.  We also, compete in the JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl, as well as the Cadet Command Essay Contest, which is sponsored by the College Option Foundation.

The Superintendent’s Trophy is awarded annually to the JROTC program that accumulates the most points in these competitions throughout the school year.  For the third straight year, Broadmoor high school is the recipient of the trophy.
