The JROTC programs at Clear Creek High School, Clear Falls High School and Clear Lake High School have been named as Honor Units with Distinction (HUD) by the Department of the Army. This is the highest rating a unit can receive.

The Army’s JROTC Program for Accreditation (JPA) is a rigorous three-year program to recognize units that maintain exceptionally high standards of training and discipline in all areas of program operation. Out of more than 1,750 Army JROTC programs nationwide, fewer than 10% earn this award. This was the first year for Clear Falls, while Clear Creek and Clear Lake both earned it in their last inspections.

For the formal inspection, both the cadets and their instructors are evaluated and inspected on a variety of elements including service-learning briefs, portfolios, unit reports and interviews.

“The cadets put in many hours conducting the service-learning project and preparing to brief the inspectors,” said retired Army Lt. Col. Wendell Harris who is the district coordinator of military science and senior Army instructor. “They are also required to come up with a continuous improvement plan for the program, implement the plan and assess the results.” Clear Creek JROTC

Cadets will receive merit points and individual awards for their performance. The HUD designation also allows the instructors to nominate students for the U.S Service Academies.

“We would like to acknowledge how proud we are of our JROTC programs,” said Harris. “This is an outstanding achievement requiring countless hours of hard work and dedication by our cadets and cadre. It is in keeping with CCISD’s mission statement ensuring all students achieve, contribute and lead with integrity.”
