The Hermon High School Hawk Battalion is the largest JROTC program in the state of Maine, with over 120 cadets. Instructed by (Retired) Major Marcel Fortier and (Retired) First Sergeant Rob Jenkins, the Hawk Battalion offers competitive Drill, Color Guard, Marksmanship, and Raider teams. The mission of JROTC is to motivate young people to become better citizens. But it goes further than that. The Hermon Hawk Battalion is all about being a part of something bigger than yourself. Whether this is through volunteer service, team membership, or contributing to your school, cadets are always making a difference.
