Hillgrove cadets have experienced many successes over the years. Our cadets are fiercely competitive and work very hard day after day to put themselves in a position to be successful. Our cadets understand that nothing is given, but instead, earned. They simply prepare to be the best they can be across all areas of competition and performance. Winning follows.
To that end, CONGRATULATIONS to ALL of our competitive teams (Brain Brawl, Drill, Drone, Orienteering, and Rifle) who have each qualified for their respective Area-12 (State) Championship competitions later this year. Hillgrove is one of ONLY a very few Units in GA to qualify for ALL five NJROTC championships; There are 61 eligible NJROTC units in Area-12.
