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