Oct. 6 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the Maricopa High School AFJROTC Department will host its Bi-Annual Promotion Ceremony in the Performing Arts Center.
The Promotion Ceremony is an event that takes place in the early fall and late spring where cadets are recognized for their growth and achievements in the Maricopa High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) program.
Promotions are based on the cadet’s potential abilities to successfully accomplish a job and tasks with increased duties and responsibilities. The AFJROTC instructors place a great amount of trust and confidence in these select cadets to help lead the Cadet Corps.
The current Corps leadership presides over the ceremony, with the instructors providing comments to family and staff highlighting the customs and traditions of military promotion ceremonies. The ceremony is open to parents, faculty and staff in order to make this a memorable event for the cadets.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the cadets can be congratulated by all in attendance and family and friends can take photos of the newly promoted cadets on stage. The AFJROTC Department would like to encourage everyone to attend to thank all of the cadets for their hard work in planning and executing this event.
