Florida Prep AFJROTC Earns Distinguished Unit Award

Air Force JROTC 2018-2019 Distinguished Unit Award

Until five years ago, the AFJROTC program was a mandatory aspect of student life at Florida Air Academy, but following the school's transition to Florida Prep, the program became an optional high school elective.

Participating students take their involvement seriously and work diligently to represent their unit and the school to their highest ability. That hard work has continued to pay off as they have now earned the Distinguished Unit Award for five straight years.

While the focus of the program is not to earn awards, the Florida Prep unit has shown itself time and again worthy of recognized, exemplifying the standards required of an AFJROTC cadet.

It is, therefore, with great pride that we offer our congratulations to the cadets in unit FL-032.
