SHELTON CLIMBER COMPANY NAVY JROTC

 

ABOUT US

SHELTON NJROTC

Was officially chartered by the Navy the 24th of May, 1979, and has been commonplace in the community ever since. Though the unit has changed a lot in the past 40 years, the fighting spirit and pride of Climber Company has remained strong. The company plays an essential role in many community events. Our cadets volunteer in events such as Oyster-Fest, the Forest Festival car show, and the Relay For Life. Members of our unit may be seen throughout the year providing ceremonies such as color guards and 21-Gun salutes.

The unit attends many annual events, such as the Memorial Day celebration at Shelton Memorial Park, where we provide a color guard and firing detail.

OUR MISSION

THE MISSION OF NJROTC

"Is to instill in students in United States secondary educational institutions the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and a sense of accomplishment."

SHELTON HIGH SCHOOL NJROTC MARCHES ON

With so much of the past school year having changed, the cadets of the Shelton High School Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps understand that developing leadership skills and accepting leadership positions is a central part of the citizenship development program.

While normally the company would have held its annual Change of Command ceremony at the conclusion of the school year, a ceremony that carries a rich Naval tradition of relinquishing commands with a formal passing of responsibility and authority from one officer to another.  Unfortunately, we know that nothing has been normal this past year but, the need for new leadership remains necessary for the coming year.

So, with input from the cadets prior to the shut-down of school, and concurrence of the instructors, Shelton High School’s NJROTC leadership team is announced. Relieving the outgoing Commanding Officer cadet lieutenant commander Alexis Young will be cadet Lieutenant Commander Hope Cassidy and relieving outgoing Executive Officer, cadet Lieutenant Sirius James will be cadet Lieutenant Hunter Middleton. Rounding out the top three is the Command Senior Chief. Relieving the outgoing cadet Senior Chief, Fernando Salamanca will be cadet Senior Chief Jadyn Redmann. There will be other leadership changes announced, but we wanted to make sure that the top three were announced first. With the exception of Lieutenant Commander Hope Cassidy who was recently promoted, the remaining cadets will be officially promoted to their respective ranks as soon as socially possible. We would like to say thank you to the outgoing leadership team and welcome the incoming leadership team.
