Wharton High School's AFJROTC unit has been awarded the AFJROTC Distinguished Unit Award, the highest award a unit can receive during a non-inspection year. Congratulations to all of the Cadets, your hard work and commitment to excellence continue to take the Wharton High School AFJROTC unit to new and greater heights!
