South Gwinnett JROTC receives special designation

The South Gwinnett High School Comet Battalion recently went through an intensive formal inspection and came out with high marks, which gave the unit a special designation.

The JROTC program received the Honor Unit with Distinction label, the highest accreditation level that an Army JROTC program can receive across the country. The

Comet Battalion received an overall score of 95.8 percent.
“Our cadets have been working very hard to become an Honor Unit with Distinction for approximately six years, and they have finally accomplished their mission,” said retired Lt. Col. Nathaniel Flegler Jr., the senior Army instructor in charge of the program.

The purpose of the inspection was to assess and validate the growth and compliance of the program. The accreditation consisted of a Cadet Continuous Improvement Briefing, Cadet Service Learning Project, drill/ceremony and portfolio interviews by cadets and instructors.
