PLEASANT GROVE, AL -- Pleasant Grove High School JROTC shares the following:

I am CW4 (Ret) Eugene Murphy, Senior Army Instructor (SAI) for the PGHS JROTC program. This is a first year NDCC program and we are doing great things in Jefferson County! My Cadets are extremely motivated and destined for greatness. Our principal, Mr. Watkins, is an outstanding leader and very supportive of the program. I would also like to highlight our Career Tech Director, Mr. Bobby Jackson, who is second to none! The unwavering support and assistance that I am receiving from Jefferson County as a brand new program is beyond reproach. Attached are pictures from our JROTC Expo Recruiting trip, JROTC Promotional day featuring the Navy STEM presentations & Virtual Reality Simulators, just to name a few. Our principal (Mr. Watkins) joined in on the Pull-up challenge and Mr. Jackson (Career Tech Director) joined in with Alpha Co. to take on the challenging V/R mission.

Keep up the great work, Pleasant Grove HS JROTC - MEGA HOOAH!!!
