Leaders instill honor and discipline.

2009: The Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (MCJROTC) has 210 cadet participants, 20 less than the year before. In a break from tradition, all cadets, 106 males and 104 females, came from North High. However, Central Campus also has a MCJROTC program at their school.

In class, cadets learned about self-discipline, leadership, caring, and respect. They honored the men and women fighting for our country's freedom. The program physically and mentally prepared the cadets for life. In addition, students learned the basic movements and history of the Marine Corps. See photo of 2009 class below.
