 Welcome to the Panther Battalion

 Our Mission – “Motivate young people to become better citizens.”

Successful completion of the JROTC program goes even deeper than our mission statement.  JROTC provides Cadets with skills,  experience and self-confidence that you will draw upon for the rest of your life.  

Our Philosophy – “JROTC is a service to our nation.”

JROTC provides Cadets the motivation and skills to improve physical fitness; remain drug free; think critically and creatively; communicate effectively; work as a team member; graduate from high school; pursue meaningful careers especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM); and become successful citizens.  JROTC works to instill in students in secondary educational institutions, the values of citizenship, service to the community and the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment. It incorporates 21st Century learning, supportive of school-wide expectations for learning results promotes healthy lifestyles, develops leadership, strengthens positive self-motivation and enhances global awareness to include providing a historical perspective of military service.

Our Creed – “I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet.”

I am an Army Junior ROTC Cadet.

I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of 
Cadets.

I am loyal and patriotic.

I am the future of the United States of America.

I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my actions and deeds.

I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.

I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.

I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the Constitution and the American way of life.


May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.

Our Cadets – “Trained to Standard.”

Cadets in the Panther Battalion come from all grade levels at Westwood.  We believe in setting and maintaining high standards for personal conduct, uniform wear and the Cadet Creed above.  In addition to basic  skills such as drill and ceremony (marching), marksmanship and intensive leadership training, Cadets also receive training in self-development, government, citizenship, geography, map reading, financial management, interpersonal skills and communication.  At the completion of the JROTC program, our Cadets are armed with the skills, capabilities and values that will lead them to success in whatever career path they choose.

 

Motivation

“There is always a light at the end of the tunnel”

“When you feel like quitting, think about why you started”

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your Dreams”

“If you’re not where you think you should be at this particular place. It has nothing to do with the system, but it has everything to do with the fact that you’re not making the sacrifice.”

“Tough Times Don’t Last…Tough People Do!”

“Never say never because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.”

“When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, that’s when you will be successful.”

“Your attitude determines your direction”

“Every day may not be a good, but there is something good in every day”
