On October 16 and October 19, 2018, 8th graders from Taft and Montgomery Middle visited Kearny High School to see what our school has to offer. During those times, we showed the students the benefits of joining JROTC. With the Archery Team in session, the Army Instructors explained the purpose of JROTC and how it can support students during their path in high school. We hope that next year, we will see those faces in our program!

Cadets spent several hours giving back to the community by volunteering at Cubberley Elementary on May 29, 2015. Both the faces of students and families were filled with joy and excitement at this carnival. In order for that to happen, eighteen of our cadets helped set up for the carnival, run booths, and clean up. Cadets lead activities such as: a race car booth, ring toss, face painting, and a concession stand. These cadets were eager to help out their community, thus exemplifying both good citizenship and role- model behavior. Most importantly, this event allowed cadets to give back to their roots and hopefully inspire future cadets.

The students, parents, and the volunteers all had a great time at the carnival.
