Fundraising, Recruiting, and Sponsors

Without the help of our many sponsors, fundraisers, and recruiting trips, our unit would be struggling to be alive. So please donate to help us function as a whole and give an adequate experience to every cadet. In addition, to the fundraising and our sponsor like the Rotary Club, and Dominion Shooting range, recruiting plays a major role to our Company. That is why it is so vital that we get new cadets to sign up. Nonetheless, if you are interested in our unit check out the cadet resources portion above to view the required forms, and or to get a waiver if interested in our fine Navy program.

Last year our Athletic and Drill teams placed in the top 10 of 57 units in Maryland and Virginia.

For the first time in its eleven year history, James River High School NJROTC will send a cadet to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Cadet Lieutenant Commander Ben Doniger will attend the Naval Academy as the class of 2024. Cadet Ben Doniger is the 2019-2020 Commanding Officer for the James River High School company and is known for the exceptionally high standard he keeps in not only his professional life in NJROTC, but also the high standard he keeps for himself outside of NJROTC. Cadet Lieutenant Commander Ben Doniger will attend a rigorous and challenging seven week program known as “Plebe Summer” which will formally introduce him to the many aspects and challenges of the academy. After the completion of this seven week course filled with physically and mentally demanding tasks, Cadet Doniger will officially be named a “Plebe” or Freshman in the United States Naval Academy.
