The cadets for Quitman High School's Junior ROTC had their three-year inspection Friday, proving to inspectors that they are proficient in marching, academics and the curriculum they're being taught.
The cadets have been working three days a week after school for the last six months to get ready.
"From here, after the inspection, we'll get the results back in, I guess, a couple of months. And then from there, they've set the standard for the next class that comes in to adhere or comply with that standard," said 1st SGT Marvin Nance (Ret.).
JROTC has been around since 1916. It's currently in more than 1600 schools, with almost 300,000 cadets enrolled.
