MCS Champions

 

Lt. Col. Wilson, CMSgt Alfaro and MSgt Smith

 

The Marietta High School AFJROTC program continues to be ranked among the best in the state of Georgia – and it is due to the quality leadership of Lt. Colonel James Wilson, Chief Master Sergeant Jose Alfaro, and Master Sergeant Nicholas Smith. Their tireless commitment to the AFJROTC program has produced quality cadets through coursework in Leadership and Aerospace Science.

The program continuously produces students who “stand out” as forerunners in their class. In the past three years, the guidance provided by these three leaders produced eight appointments to U.S. military academies, providing scholarships up to $1.5 million for each cadet – including an additional appointment received by current MHS senior Joshua McMahon ‘C 2016.
