Falcon Family, Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!
I am SFC (R) Calvin Brown, Army instructor for JROTC, LET I & LET II. This year marks the start of my 8th year as a JROTC instructor.The first seven years were spent at Holmes County Central high School in Lexington, MS.
I am a native Mississippian by way of Marks, MS. I spent my preteen through high school years in Germantown, Ohio, where I graduated from Germantown High School. My military career began with me taking the oath of enlistment in Cincinnati, Ohio. And 33 years later, my military career ended in Honorable Discharges and honorably retired as a Sergeant First Class (E-7).
Having the opportunity to be a JROTC instructor allows me and the program to add something special for your kids and your community. The JROTC MISSION STATEMENT- To motivate young people to be better citizens is the blueprint to creating tomorrow's leaders.
