Beloit's Lincoln Academy to Launch Navy ROTC Program
BELOIT- A Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) program will be coming to The Lincoln Academy in January of 2023.
On Monday, The Lincoln Academy was approved for a NJROTC program by Naval Service Training Command.
“This is our school’s first JROTC program and first program involved with the armed forces,” said Kristi Y. Cole, Chief Education Officer for The Lincoln Academy.
“We started planning for this and applied for the program during our planning year, a year prior to TLA opening,” Cole recalled. “We felt a partnership with the Navy would be a perfect fit for The Lincoln Academy as we have Fairbanks Morse as one of our partners who works closely with the Navy. Plus, we are on a wonderful body of water, the Rock River, and we would be the first NJROTC program in the state of Wisconsin.”
