Learning about pharmaceuticals, fixing brakes and dying hair won’t be the only things going on in the CATE center next year as the Jr. ROTC, a national military program, will make its debut at Princeton High School.
“Our program mission 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,” Assistant Superintendent Donald McIntyre said. “I believe this program will allow more students to reach their full potential and become productive members of society.”
Princeton ISD has hired Lieutenant Commander James Reed to be the senior naval science instructor. LCDR Reed is a retired Naval aviator with 26 years of service, and he has 20 years of JROTC teaching experience.
District officials are excited about the elite CATE program, as well as the opportunity for increased competition.
