The Promotion Ceremony is an event that takes place in the early Fall where Cadets are recognized for their growth and achievements in the program. Cadets will be awarded a higher rank and a position in the program. This applies only to Cadets who have strived in their classes, not just their JROTC class, and out of school at teams, service projects, etc. Not every Cadet will get promoted, only Cadets who have done good all around in JROTC and above. You get out what you have put in. You earn your rank, its for a purpose, not just because you're in the program. Work hard and you will be recognized for what you have done.
