The recipient of this honor has demonstrated outstanding cadet performance; proven qualities of dependability and good character; adhered to military discipline; shown leadership ability; and mastered a fundamental and patriotic understanding of the JROTC training.

Cadet Corporal Rebecca King earned the American Legion Scholastic Excellence Award. The student who earns this distinction has compiled an impressive record of academic performance, achieved a scholastic grade of ‘A’ in JROTC or both of these milestones.

Recipients of the Scholastic Excellence Award rank in the upper 10 percent of the JROTC academic class, demonstrate outstanding qualities in military leadership and actively participate in constructive student activities, such as student organizations or sports.

Sepulveda and King received a medal, ribbon and certificate.

“The American Legion is a strong supporter of JROTC and ROTC programs across the United States,” Vannoy said. “The purpose of the American Legion youth award programs is to develop America’s future leaders by motivating and encouraging young people. The awards also recognize exceptional performance in the areas of JROTC, citizenship, Americanism, scholarship, music, athleticism and essay endeavors.”
