  • JROTC Students at WWII Veteran’s Luncheon

    Nineteen BISD Air Force Junior ROTC cadets were cordially invited by Paul Swartz to participate in the monthly WWII Veteran’s Luncheon held at the Birchman Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas on 24 February2017. Kevin Boldt began this luncheon with 4 WWII Veterans in 2014. This event has grown into a group of over 100 that attend regularly, topping out at 350 for the Pearl Harbor Commemorative luncheon December 7, 2016.  The luncheons have expanded in scope as well as size, to include veterans from all wars and peacetime veterans along with active service members seeking camaraderie, entertainment and information.  Cadets had the opportunity to shake hands with men and women willing to risk it all and hear their stories first hand. Cadets said it was like walking into a living history book. Two of the WWII Veterans (Don Graves and Bill Schott) have volunteered to speak at Annual AFJROTC Awards Ceremony on 20 April 2017.

  • AFJROTC Receives Exceeds Standards Rating

    The BISD AFJROTC TX-801st received an Exceeds Standards on their Unit Evaluation from HQ AFJROTC on Thursday, February 23.  This is the highest rating possible on this inspection that only occurs every three years.  We congratulate them on this milestone achievement that now allows them to be eligible for the Distinguished Unit Award with Merit that will be announced in June.
    Their Regional Director, retired Major Donald Bailey, was their evaluator for this detailed inspection.  He went through a 17 page checklist that included 8 sections on Administration, Compliance, Instructor Performance, Equipment Management, Co-Curricular Activities, Cadet Operations, Unit Operations, and a Director’s Special Interest Section. Major Bailey inspected all 126 cadets in a mass formation and awarded the Top Performer Awards to Cadet Colonel Nicole McDade, Cadet Colonel Elizabeth Webb, and Cadet Lt Colonel Hayley Starks. Major Bailey received a briefing from the Top 6 cadets, met with the Principal, Counselors, Instructors and cadets in this head to toe comprehensive program evaluation.
    Less than 10% of the units he evaluates each year are awarded this highest rating.  It is reserved for those that are truly at the top of their game.  In this one day inspection he was able to see the support our program has from the administration and the impact it is having on our community and on individual cadets.
    We again congratulate the TX-801st in this achievement.
