We know these cadets and their families have overcome significant challenges to continue to learn and lead. These promotions reflect that, at its essence, this Bensalem High School MCJROTC Leadership Education Program develops character and enhances citizenship in our youngsters.  Our long-time successful program produces young men and women who are ready to accept the responsibilities, as well as, the privileges of citizenship. We are rightfully proud of these cadets.  However, we know they could not have succeeded without their sterling personal effort, the support of their families, and the embrace of the faculty and staff to this MCJROTC program.

We take promotions seriously as an accolade that is earned, not given.  We shall promote these cadets formally in person if they are physically present and via Zoom if they are not.  Finally, these cadets are told that they must continue to maintain the standard of excellence in all that they do or else forfeit their newly promoted status. 

Any questions concerning this effort may be directed to Colonel Church at 215.750.2800 X 3109 or via email  Thank you - Semper Fidelis and Bensalem STRONG!
