Adair moves up to No. 59 on waiting list for JROTC

Special CM Education Story
News from Adair County High School

A check this morning with Superintendent Alan Reed coincided with his receipt of a letter from Colonel David Thompson, Director of the Department of Military Affairs in Frankfort, KY with good news on the effort to get a Junior U.S. Army ROTC program at Adair County High School.

Col. Thompson said that Adair County is now No. 59 on a waiting list of 230 nationwide.

"This is good news. And I'd be remiss if I didn't credit the work of others who have made the ranking possible. We wouldn't be where we are today without the help of many outstanding people, in particular one behind the scenes individual who's asked not to be in the spotlight, but whose help has proven invaluable," Mr. Reed said, to make a long story short.

Supeintendent Reed cautioned that with the budget constraints, the number of U.S. Army JROTC program has been capped at 1731. "There is flux in those numbers," he said. "Some attrition occurs," bit added, "We would expect some of those 1731 programs to be dropped, some to drop out voluntarily for various reasons." But acknowledged that he hasn't yet analyzed the arithmetic to see just when Adair County might expect to see the JROTC program a reality, based on past statistics.
