MISSION:  To motivate young people to be better citizens.



The first month as the Senior Army Instructor has been extremely busy.  We have begun the term with an greater slant towards academic improvement while maintaining the same quality of training for all the upcoming events on our calendar. Again let me reiterate how humbled to be be here and welcomed by this community, the parents, and the students. My team and I continue to look forward to working with the students as they hone their skills towards becoming engaged and productive citizens. 

The North Brunswick JROTC Rifle Team competed in the JROTC Army Service Championship from 13-15 Feb in Anniston, Alabama. Our team qualified as the 2nd Place , Silver Medalist for the Region and in 3rd Place (Bronze Medalist) amongst all Army JROTC units across the nation with a two day score of 4310.  The team and scores were comprised of Christopher Hines (1092), Austin Johnson (1090), Spencer West (1064) and Shianne Koehnle (1064).  Joseph Johnson competed as an individual and had a two day score of 1047.

Based on their outstanding shooting, Christopher Hines and Austin Johnson made it to the finals which consisted of the top eight shooters of the match. Going into the match, Christopher Hines was the number five shooter and Austin Johnson was the number seven shooter. These shooters competed in a ten round shoulder to shoulder shoot off to determine the top three medalists.  In the end, Austin Johnson took home the silver medal with a score of 1183 and Christopher Hines finished with the bronze medal with a score of 1182.4.

Their excellent performance has qualified the team to compete in the JROTC National Championship to be held at Camp Perry, Ohio from 18-22 March 2015. Please take the time to congratulate these students. They have represented NBHS in an outstanding manner. 

 We also just received acknowledgement from the U.S. Army Marksmanship Program that North Brunswick High School JROTC was awarded the Silver Medal during the Sport State Match.  This means we are ranked as the #2 team in the State amongst all JROTC schools, immaterial of service.  This has qualified us to attend and compete at the next level, the Nationals for the U.S. Army Marksmanship Program in Fort Benning, GA, April 18-20.   The team is expertly coached by 1SG George L. Williams.
