Home of the World's Best Cadets
Welcome to the Liberty High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) website! You've chosen to participate/visit our superb program/website that offers information about the education, leadership and community service we do as cadets.
When the JROTC program began in 1911 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Army Lieutenant Edgar R. Steevers, who was assigned as an inspector-instructor of the organized military of Wyoming, originated the idea of a non-compulsory, high school cadet corps aimed at making better citizens, as opposed to soldiers. The National Defense Act of 1916 originally authorized JROTC. The ROTC Vitalization Act (Public Law 88-647) of 1964 directed the Secretaries of each military service to establish and maintain JROTC units at public and private secondary schools, with eligibility according to regulations established by each Secretary. Air Force Junior ROTC actually began in 1966 with 20 units.
Liberty's Air Force JROTC Program, designated as NV-20051, was established on July 1, 2005. In our first year, 120 cadets enrolled in the program. Our objectives of JROTC are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline, and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.
The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force core values of integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do. The curriculum emphasizes the Air Force heritage and traditions, the development of flight, applied flight sciences, military aerospace policies, and space exploration.
To accomplish our Congressionally mandated mission, the Liberty JROTC program is designed to educate and train high school students in citzenship; promote community service; develop leadership potential; instill responsibility, character and self-discipline; and provide instruction in air and space fundamentals.
