“I am very satisfied with the conduct of the cadets who participated in the inspection,” Senior Naval Science Instructor Lieutenant Commander (LCDR) Larry Wilcock said. “The dedication to the unit and to their peers was evident for all to see.” 

“I’m especially grateful to our visiting guest inspector, Captain Larry Schneider, and all the parents and friends who attended the pass in review and who support their children and their school activities.” 

Separate from the ceremonial pass in review, cadets underwent personnel inspection and drill inspection. Cadet staff officers continued the day with inspection of all files, records, supply inventory, finances and property. All NJROTC staff officers also delivered a presentation briefing to retired U.S. Navy Captain Larry Schneider, the inspecting officer. 

The NJROTC Training Corps program at Greenville High School first began in 2009. The program’s curriculum emphasizes citizenship and leadership development, as well as maritime topics, the significance of sea power, the fundamentals of naval operations, seamanship, navigation and meteorology. Classroom instruction is augmented throughout the year by community service activities, drill competition, field meets, visits to military activities, marksmanship training and other military training.
