The Military Ball is a JROTC event that has been considered a tradition every first Saturday in the month of February. This year the dance was held on February 6th at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix.

The gentlemen wear the Class A uniform which is a dark blue jacket along with dress pants. The females wear ball gowns. Along with a nice dinner are recognitions for multiple cadets from different high schools. Kings and queens are also elected from different schools. They compete to become king and queen of the ball.

JROTC – Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps – is a program for students to take on new learning experiences, just like army cadets do. This program has a lot to offer: competitions like Unarmed and Armed Drill team, Raiders, Color-guard, and Rifle Team. JROTC  teaches you to become a better citizen, not only for school but for yourself. No ordinary class can compare to JROTC, which allows you to live within the moment, to experience new and greater challenges, and where you not only learn with the mind, you learn with the heart. JROTC serves as a character and leadership development program for our nation’s high school students.
