FWPS Air Force JROTC’s receive highest attainable assessment rating

During October 2017 evaluations, the Federal Way Public Schools Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Citizenship Programs from Federal Way High School and Todd Beamer High School both earned overall unit assessment scores of “exceeds standards” — the highest rating that can be attained.

Federal Way High School’s Air Force JROTC has 112 scholar-cadets while Todd Beamer’s Air Force JROTC has 80 scholar-cadets. Both high school programs were evaluated in seven different areas that range from community service activities to scholar-cadet leadership and how well the scholar-cadets manage the Air Force JROTC program. All scholar-cadets performed exceptionally well and took great pride in leading and accomplishing their unit goals. Both Air Force JROTC citizenship programs continue to create a positive impact on participating cadets, as well as on its schools and the Federal Way community.

Federal Way High School Assistant Principal Randy Long and Air Force JROTC instructors, Major Joseph J. Golemboski and Master Sergeant Willie J. Smith, along with the instructors of Todd Beamer’s Air Force JROTC Major Barry D. Jones and Senior Master Sergeant Wayne Lott Sr. each contribute to a dynamic and supportive learning environment. The instructors also provide outstanding leadership in administering the cadet centered Citizenship Program.

According to the United States Air Force’s official website, the Air Force JROTC is a program that “provides leadership training and an aerospace science program for high school students.” The goal of the Air Force JROTC program is to “instill values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.”
