To Motivate Young People to Become Better Citizens
Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) programs are often believed to be classes that prepare and encourage students to join the military. In actuality, the majority (about 80%) of JROTC cadets choose not to join the military, and instead become effective, confident leaders in other areas of expertise.
At Ozark, we strive to inspire others to be leaders; to complete a mission by providing purpose, direction, and motivation. We offer an environment that gives cadets a place to grow, feel welcomed, and call home. JROTC holds pride in the way that most academic courses and JROTC events are led. The Tiger Battalion is completely cadet lead, which means that all the events held by the Ozark JROTC are organized and executed by the students with little to no direction from the instructors. Each cadet is given an opportunity to develop responsibility, leadership, and other skills that are necessary for the process of becoming a better citizen.
The JROTC webpage is designed and managed by JROTC cadets.
