It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Porter High School's Air Force Junior ROTC Program. Your commitment to this program will be exemplified throughout the year as your instructors promote the goals of both Porter High School and the Air Force.
"Develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community”
The objectives of JROTC are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals. The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The curriculum emphasizes the Air Force heritage and traditions, the development of flight, applied flight sciences, military aerospace policies, and space exploration. To this end, through our aerospace curriculum and community service projects, your instructors will integrate such character traits as integrity, teamwork, responsibility, ethics, self-discipline and respect. These traits will serve you well as you move through your years as a Porter Spartan. Congratulations on choosing this excellent program. I firmly believe that through your involvement you will become a fine citizen and leader.
Best of luck this year!
