Prescott Orienteering Meet
Come run / volunteer Sat 21 April from 0800 - 1400
Call Col Peeples at 928 533 8401 for questions

Search on google Earth : “Skyline Drive Prescott AZ”   This will give you directions to Prescott BUT IS TOO FAR FOR THE MEET. YOU WILL TURN LEFT, SOUTH OFF OF IRON SPRINGS ROAD BEFORE, BEFORE SKYLINE DRIVE !!!!!

3.0 miles west on Iron Springs Road from Williamson Valley Intersection will be entrance to the Orienteering Area on the left near the top of the hill / mountain. DO NOT GO ALL THE WAY TO SKYLINE ROAD THIS IS WRONG !!!!  Google Earth has the area listed as Forest Trail 332 but do NOT follow directions to this, it brings you in on CLOSED FOREST ROADS, NOT ON THE ONE YOU NEED TO ACCESS FOR THE MEET.

Welcome to the Prescott Junior ROTC website!  Here you will find information on all the courses we offer, cadet schedule, class schedules, resources and policies, and the latest announcements so you always know what's happening. 

Prescott High School AFJROTC, AZ-20063, has been awarded the "Distinguished Unit Award" (top 10% in the world) every year since the unit began in Aug 2006.  In May 2014, we were awarded the Distinguished Unit Award w/Merit (the highest unit award possible) for the third time in ten years!!!  In May 2012, both instructors, Col (Ret) Denny Peeples and Lt Col (Ret) Bill DeKemper were designated "Outstanding Instructors with Merit" by HQ AFJROTC.  During our Jan 2014 Unit Inspection, Mr Greg Winn, Deputy Director of AFJROTC, said in his out-brief that AZ-20063 is "well into the top 10 units I have ever seen."  He has been looking at units all over the world for 10 years.

JROTC Cadets are dedicated to integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.  We commit to 40 hours of community service a year per cadet, and we uphold the highest values and morals. JROTC offers five courses: JROTC PE, JROTC Science of flight, JROTC Space and Astromy, and our senior leadership class: Senior Aerospace Leadership.

DID YOU KNOW:  The State of Arizona has a law that benefits taxpayers and school children alike?  A.R.S 43-1089 allows a tax credit of $200 for individuals and $400 for married couples filing jointly, for fees or donations paid to a public school in support of extracurricular activities.

IT COSTS YOU NOTHING.  It gives you a say in how your tax dollars are spent and reduces your tax bill by whatever amount you donate.  Let's say you donate $400 to an eligible school activity.  You will reduce your Arizona State tax bill by $400.00.  If you expect a refund, it will be $400 higher.  If you don't pay state income tax, you cannot reduce your liability below $0.

YOU MAKE A CADET'S LIFE BETTER: A $200 donation will host an activity bus to an Orienteering Meet in at Lake Pleasant for 14 Varsity athletes. A $400 donation will pay for a yellow school bus to Luke Air Force Base or NAU  / Lowell Observatory for 50 cadets.
