Naval Captain Tours NJROTC Magnet Program at CNHS

The Navy Junior ROTC Magnet Program at Colts Neck High School had a very special guest when Captain Craig Mattingly, Command, Naval Service Training Command, visited on November 21, 2023. 

Captain Mattingly met with cadet staff and toured the program's facilities within the school. He then presented the Most Outstanding Unit in the Nation Award to the group. Colts Neck's cadets were ranked #1 out of 640 units, making it the second time the unit has received this honor in four years.

Impressed by Colts Neck's ROTC program, Captain Mattingly credited the program's success to the overwhelming support and pride that the Colts Neck community provides. The parental involvement, the dedication of the staff, and the support of the administration allow both the students and the program to thrive, Captain Mattingly said.
