JROTC program will continue in Salem
This week, however, the School Board approved a plan that will keep the program running for at least the next two years.
Since the program was established in 2000, Delahanty said there has only been one year where there was more than 100 cadets enrolled.
Delahanty wrote a letter appealing the decision and said he believed there was a chance the Air Force would continue to support the program.
Delahanty said it looked like the deactivation would move forward, and he met with the cadets last Thursday to break the news to them.
After that time, Delahanty said there would be the possibility the program could be deactivated if it fails to reach the 100 cadet mark.Delahanty said the cadets, their parents and supporters have promised to promote the program in the community in efforts to top the enrollment mark. If the program does hit the enrollment mark, Delahanty said it is possible to reapply with the Air Force and once again have it pay for part of the program.“I think we need to stress that the program needs 100 cadets whether the new organization requires it or not so we can reapply to the Air Force in two years,” said School Board member Michael Carney. “I think this program is an outstanding benefit to all the cadets in there. Many have found their place through the JROTC program as a vital part of our community.”
