The Marine Corps JROTC unit of Granbury High School and Crossland Ninth Grade Center received an excellent rating during an inspection on January 16, 2013.
The review was led by Lt. Col. Mark Stroman, regional director of the Marine Corps JROTC program. He was assisted by four Marines from recruiting and other details in the Fort Worth area.
The inspection, covering dozens of cadets participating in the program, included the cadet companies, battalion staff, color guard, and rifle units.
Inspectors conducted a personnel and administrative inspection consisting of uniform appearance and fit as well as personal grooming. Cadets were also quizzed about the chain of command as well as general military subjects such as Marine Corps history and uniform regulations. Each cadet spent several minutes answering oral questions and being scrutinized by a Marine non-commissioned officer.
The review also included an administrative and logistical portion covering key billets such as administration, supply, and the armory.
JROTC instructors are Lt. Col. Scott Casey and First Seargeant Johnny Rositas.
