JROTC Academic Bowl

I didn't know there was any such thing, but the JROTC program at one of our district's high schools (I think we have the program at only 2 of our 9 high schools) is on its way to DC to participate:

Students from Casa Roble Fundamental High School’s Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps will travel to Washington, D.C., in April to take part in the College Options Foundation’s Air Force JROTC Academic Bowl. The team is one of only 12 in the nation to advance to finals and the only school from California.

The team survived two tough rounds to win its place in the championship and the trip, which will be funded by the College Options Foundation and AFJROTC headquarters. Students will go on a whirlwind sightseeing tour around Washington, D.C., prior to the start of the championship activities.

This information comes from an email sent to district employees today. Congratulations, cadets!
