Apache Junction High School's Navy JROTC Academic Team capped an outstanding school year with a Top 10 finish April 27 at the NJROTC National Academic Competition in Orlando, Fla. This was the first time the high school qualified for the national level after making several appearances at the Western Regionals in California. The level of competition in Orlando was intense with the top four students from the top three schools in each region of the United States competing with one another. AJHS made it through to the semifinals among academically top-ranked public and private high schools in the nation with much larger NJROTC programs. Apache Junction High School's NJROTC is now ranked ninth in the entire nation for academics and is looking forward to climbing the ranks in 2013-14. Congratulations to team members Grifyn Davis, freshman; Nick Knight, sophomore; Uziel Pilas, junior; and Grace Kennedy, senior.
