Cadets in Knox County’s JROTC program returned to school in the new year with new tools and unique opportunities to expand their skills using modern technology.

The US Army Cadet Command has provided a complete robot kit with competition arena to the Panther Battalion.  Also, an advanced flying drone has been added to the inventory.

“Cadets will be learning, building and operating these systems, for purposes of furthering their education experience, as well as providing the schools and community with exciting video footage of the area and events,” explained CSM (R) Keith Hembree.

“Knox JROTC takes great pride in providing the best and most advanced educational opportunities available to our students.  Our mission as always is to motivate young people to be better citizens.”
