Introducing Panther Battalion Honor Unit with Distinction
Tell the Quitman High School JROTC students to casually pose in their classroom, and then watch as they gracefully coordinate the most posed photo you’ve seen all year.
Please allow us to introduce the Quitman High School Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corp. This battalion is classified in the United States Department of the Army as a 2019 Honor Unit with Distinction. Under the leadership of Battalion Commander Heavin McCrae, Executive Officer Davia Laphand, and Command Sergeant Major Derrion Shaw this Panther Battalion was visited by the United States Department of Army on April 24, 2019.
That same day Mr. Stanley Griffin, the Army representative for Cadet Command, awarded a gold star to the Panther Battalion.
