Cadet Corporal Rebecca King earned the American Legion Scholastic Excellence Award. The student who earns this distinction has compiled an impressive record of academic performance, achieved a scholastic grade of ‘A’ in JROTC or both of these milestones.

“The American Legion is a strong supporter of JROTC and ROTC programs across the United States,” Vannoy said. “The purpose of the American Legion youth award programs is to develop America’s future leaders by motivating and encouraging young people. The awards also recognize exceptional performance in the areas of JROTC, citizenship, Americanism, scholarship, music, athleticism and essay endeavors.”
