Welcome Aboard 2017-18 NJROTC Cadets!!!

On Saturday, 26 August, at Acworth Beach in Cabule Park, new cadets and their parents attended our Welcome Aboard Picnic.  It was an opportunity for returning cadets to get acquainted with the fresh faces that will be new to the unit, as well as an opportunity for our NS1's and their families to get to know the SNSI and NSI. Those who attended enjoyed the food, beach, and fun. We appreciate all who participated and made this event possible. Special thanks go out to our Booster Organization who did an amazing job making sure the picnic went without a hitch.  This unit looks forward to the rising cadets that will be the future leaders of North Cobb-Harrison's NJROTC.

The North Cobb - Harrison NJROTC Brain Brawl team defended their Three-Time National Championship status and won their fourth consecutive Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps  Brain Brawl National Championship Saturday, May 6, 2017.

In order to qualify for the National Championship, teams must place in the top 3 in their region. In addition to placing first in team competition, Andrew Kelly (pictured above), co-team commander and a senior this year, placed FIRST in the Individual “Brawl Stars” competition, making it the third year in a row that a North Cobb-Harrison Cadet placed first in this individual event.

Brain Brawl is a college bowl styled academic competition, which includes questions on subjects ranging from naval history, oceanography, astronomy, navigation, geography, science, math, sports, and entertainment. It required months of preparation and practice, which resulted in their record-breaking victory. Congratulations again to the North Cobb–Harrison NJROTC Brain Brawl National Champions!
