School news

On Oct. 16, representatives from Air Force Junior ROTC Headquarters visited Randolph-Macon Academy in Front Royal for an inspection of the 091st Virginia Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.

They examined numerous components of the corps from uniform wear, marching, financing and support provided to Junior ROTC by R-MA.

Every Junior ROTC unit’s goal is to come out of these inspections as a “Distinguished Unit with Merit.” When R-MA last won this honor in 2014, they were one of 81 units to receive merit, 863 units worldwide.

Inspectors do not hand this award out immediately since the corps’ stated yearly goals must be met, but they left R-MA giving the corps an “Exceeds Standards.”

Cadets assembled for a uniform inspection, which they passed. Next, was the 30-count drill demonstration led by Cadet Senior Airman Taylor Wreath. She executed all 30 commands based on memorization.

Retired Air Force Master Sgt. Stephen Pederson spoke of the inspectors’ admiration for R-MA’s uniform storage room.

The inspectors continued with the classes of each aerospace instructor, sitting in on lessons, reviewed syllabi, observed the level of engagement with students throughout the lesson and the utilization of technology.

The R-MA team consisted of Master Sgt. Erik Dupree, leader; Sgt. Tina Laing, drills; and Master Sgt. Pederson, logistics and budget.
