Welcome to the Texas 20051st Air Force Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFJROTC) - a 2012 Headquarters, AFJROTC Distinguished Unit with Merit! The fact you’ve chosen to enroll in AFJROTC tells me that you’re interested in the general areas of aerospace science, aviation, drill & ceremonies, military traditions, and leadership training. We plan to provide a wide range of activities to stimulate and challenge your interests. You’ll learn a lot about aerospace science and the Air Force in our program, but more importantly, I think you’ll learn more about yourself and your potential to succeed.
Your instructors have over 66 years of active duty experience including extensive backgrounds in professional military education and leadership training as well as over 28 years of AFJROTC and AFROTC experience.
Our Cadet Corps is managed and led by cadet officers and noncommissioned officers (NCOs). Through the cadet organization you’ll have the chance to develop leadership and management skills. These skills will help you later in whatever career or education path you may pursue after high school.
We sponsor several extracurricular activities throughout the year which are not only fun, but also provide some type of community or school service. I encourage you to get involved in some of these activities and experience what AFJROTC is really all about.
Again, welcome to John Paul Stevens High School and the Texas 20051st AFJROTC! We’re looking forward to working with you and helping you learn more about leadership, aerospace science, and the United States Air Force.
