Junior ROTC
Haywood High School – Unit TN-944

Haywood High School is fortunate to be able to offer Air Force Junior ROTC to students with an interest in learning more about citizenship, aerospace science, leadership, discipline, and wellness. The unit takes several field trips during the year to learn more about aerospace science and United States History. Those staying in the program for three to four years also earn required credits in Government and Physical Education. Those who may decide to join the military after graduation also receive additional rank opportunities, as well as scholarship opportunities for college.

The instructors are retired Air Force veterans. These instructors work closely with students with the goal that the Junior ROTC cadet leaders take on much of the leadership work required to keep the unit running smoothly. There is a cadet military drill team that competes in military drill competitions against other schools. There is also a fitness team that competes in various fitness events in the region.  Other activities for cadets include an annual military ball, rocketry camps in the summer, and numerous service activities where the AFJROTC cadets actively serve their school and community.
