  • Army JROTC Expands to New, Larger Location for Fall 2014

    After nearly a decade of operating at maximum capacity at the Career Center’s Browns Lake Road building, the program is set to begin the upcoming school year at a new location within the Ackerson Lake Community Education Building at 4126 Brooklyn Road. The move offers the opportunity for necessary growth of the popular program. Previous accommodations at the Career Center allowed the program to occupy two classrooms and reach predominantly 11th and 12th grade students; while this new location will boast 10 classrooms and eventually accommodate grades 9-12.
