Recently, Noah Samples became Perry Central’s first JROTC Cadet to earn the “Fighting Commodore” Belt Buckle. The belt buckle symbolizes the hard work and dedication that Cadets have poured into the JROTC program at Perry Central.
In order to earn the belt buckle, Samples had to go through several challenges. These challenges were a principal assigned task to improve the school’s appearance, score 50 or greater from each of the rifle team shooting positions, score a 100 percent on the creed/rank test, score an 80 percent on an LET 1 general knowledge test, and complete a 5K road march in 50 minutes or less while dressed in ACU’s while carrying a 30 pound rucksack, and finally recite the “Fighting Commodore Creed” before getting the belt buckle.
“On behalf of the JROTC Organization, I would like to thank Cadet Noah Samples for his hard work and dedication to the program,” said C/CPT Zack Hall.
