Muskogee High School’s Air Force JROTC unit has been selected as one of only 79 recipients of the 2019-2020 Distinguished Unit with Merit Award, which recognizes units that have performed well above and beyond expectations and have distinguished themselves through outstanding service to their schools and communities.

“The cadets worked so hard for this,” said USAF Major (Retired) William L. Triplett, who leads the group. “As far as we can tell, this is the first time since the unit began that we have made the list.”

The objectives of the ROTC program are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship and life skills, responsibility, character and self-discipline. In addition, it provides instruction in air and space fundamentals. It is open to 9th through 12th grade students.
