Hillcrest High school Army JROTC is the only JROTC in the largest school district in Missouri. The program carries about 12% of the population in the school with a total of about 120 students seeking to become better citizens and contributing members of society upon graduation. Some will go to college or enter into the military while others will immediately join the workforce in their community. Our program offers many different ways for young people to get involved in school and in the community including competitive drill, marksmanship and physical fitness teams. Additionally we offer a leadership summer camp held at Missouri Military Academy each summer. We have a lot of equipment that must be taken to each competition and to summer camp but do not have a trailer to adequately transport the equipment. We are looking to raise $6000 for the purchase of a trailer and wrap so that we can transport team equipment to each competition and so that our Cadets can be proud of the program and represent the school and community with dignity and self-respect. All contributions will go toward the purchase of a 7x16 double axel trailer and a wrap with the Hornet Battalion logo. A YouTube video is linked if you would like to see some of what JROTC does throughout the year. Thank you for your donations!
