Master Chief Jackson, 21 years of Crook County NJROTC and going strong!

NJROTC and Donny Jackson

Master Chief Donny Jackson has been teaching in the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) program at Crook County High School for 21 years. The program helps students become successful during high school and after. Contrary to popular belief, the program is not designed to recruit or solely to prepare students to join the U.S. Navy. The NJROTC program emphasizes citizenship and leadership development as well as our maritime heritage, the significance of sea power, and a variety of naval topics. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by extra-curricular activities of community service, academic, athletic, drill and orienteering competitions, and physical fitness training.

The Crook County NJROTC has received many awards over the years, including:

Area Manager’s Award
Area Eleven Most Improved 99/100
