For the second consecutive year in its relatively short history, The Paul W. Bryant High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC (PWBHS MCJROTC) has once again been designated as a Naval Honor School for the past academic year.

Selection as a Naval Honor School means that the school’s MCJROTC program ranks in the top 20% in the country, and is one of the top ten programs in Region 2 which covers Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, and the Carolinas.

To achieve this honor, the Bryant cadets displayed an extreme amount of dedication and hard work.  They achieved a “Full Mission Capable” score on their most recent Commanding General’s Inspection, a top to bottom inspection of the program to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of students, instructors, program administration, and activities.  In addition, they achieved the following accomplishments

Being designated a Naval Honor School brings well deserved recognition to these students, but it also allows the school to nominate cadets to the military service academies with a “Service-Affiliated” nomination.  These nominations are not available to the general population and will provide our students with an increased chance of acceptance to schools like the U.S. Military Academy and Naval Academy.
