WOODSTOCK, GA — You have been officially notified that we have placed 2nd in the nation among all U.S. Army JROTC units in the Cyber Patriot XV Competition and we are going to the National Finals! Wonderful job Commander Summers and team mentors Mr. Acklen and Mr. Kirschner on taking this Cyber Patriot Knights Alpha Team to the pinnacle of the Cyber Patriot National Championships taking place March 17-21 in Washington D.C.! The other teams are going to be extremely competitive, and we have to have our game face on to compete at this level, but this is a first for our school in our short JROTC history of 13 years. Great job! and keep your eyes and ears posted on the way ahead in the future.


Team CDR Cadet 1SG Acklen, Cadet CPT Kirschner, Cadet 1LT Thomas, Cadet SGT Merrefield, Cadet PFC Drake

You have finished fifth in the nation in the Gold Tier during the semifinalist round. Great job everybody and great season! We will continue to improve and hit it hard again and get prepared for next year!
