Whereas, Georgetown High School NJROTC is one of eleven schools across the nation being considered for "Top NJROTC Unit in the Nation"; and

Whereas, Major S.C. Studley maximized his own military expertise and training to forge a unit that excels and to teach these students lessons that will prove invaluable throughout life. Now, therefore,
