JROTC 2016-17 Superintendent’s Young Ambassadors Honored at Annual Breakfast
Atlanta Public Schools honored students who are among its best and brightest leaders this week, as a new class of Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Superintendent’s Young Ambassadors was announced during a breakfast at the offices of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, LLC in Atlantic Station.
Atlanta Public Schools began the JROTC Superintendent’s Young Ambassadors program three years ago to recognize the best citizens from every APS school with a JROTC program. JROTC Superintendent’s Young Ambassadors are chosen by a variety of factors and must pass a rigorous interview board composed of college, military, and professional panel members.
As part of their duties, they help plan the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Atlanta — where more than 300 cadets participate – as well as parts of JROTC Summer Camp, and more than 200 participated in last year’s APS Special Olympics.
This year’s ambassadors are:
