Jefferson-Morgan High School students are currently able to join the U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps this year through a partnership with a nearby school district.

The nearby school district that JM associates with is Albert Gallatin.

Students got the chance to participate in service programs, parades, field trips and activities outside the school day. Sodowsky said students complete more than 1,500 community service hours a year and learn life skills and develop career goals.

“JROTC creates opportunities. You can put as much as you want into it,” Sodowsky said. JM’s superintendent, Mr. Orr believes a program like JROTC might be even more important to students in a smaller district, that they might benefit more than a student at a large school with many extracurricular activities. Albert Gallatin, Orr said, also sees the value in the partnership.

The current JM students who are in the JROTC are, Bryce Debolt, Dimerest Hendrix, Basilica Battaglia, Haley Bercosky, Zoey Stull, and Justin Silbaugh, who is not pictured.
