On October 31, 2015 the Murrah High School JROTC drill team went to Jackson State University to participate in the Capital Region North Drill Meet and JPS Academic Competition. The competition was very exciting and held at Jackson State University for JROTC’s Fall Academic Competition. The competition consisted of questions from the JROTC curriculum, ACT and SAT tests, and current events. Not only does the competition bring success, but it also prepares cadets for major tests such as ACT and SAT.
Murrah JROTC succeeded in winning first place overall with a score of 98%. We have a team with the best and brightest! Congratulations cadets on a job well done!
The drill team was also successful in winning first place overall at the North Capital Region Drill/Academic Competition. All seven JPS high schools participated in the competition along with other schools throughout Mississippi. Set on the same day as the academic competition, the drill team showcased their best in six different areas: Personal Inspection, Unarmed Regulation, Armed Regulation, Unarmed Exhibition, Armed Exhibition and Color Guard.
The drill competition gives cadets the opportunity to demonstrate leadership and practice discipline. Drill also demonstrates teamwork and unity. We are extremely proud of our drill team!
