Fern Creek High School’s MCJROTC has been declared the most decorated JROTC in the nation. They have multiple All Branches National Champions as well as many other drill and rifle accomplishments. Students in the JROTC are taught about different kinds of leadership and how to improve on themselves. Over the summer, five JROTC seniors decided that the program had so much impact that they chose to swear into the military. Cadets Sabrina Diersen, Dallas Farmer, Jacob Mohn, Zane Jaggers, and Bailey Nickerson have already taken the leap to start their military careers before their senior year even started.
