The most important event of the school year for the Navy JROTC is quickly approaching. The Area Manager’s Inspection, or AMI, as better known to the cadets, is what makes, or breaks the school year for every NJROTC unit in the country.  

“A great result on the inspection positions the unit to be eligible for post school year accolades, while a poor or failing grade can result in the unit being put on a probation status, or maybe even immediate shut down by the Navy”, said Allison Smith, the unit’s Operations Officer.  Cocke County views this inspection as an opportunity to shine above the other JROTC units in the nation and firmly place the school in the position to receive Distinguished Unit honors from the Navy.  

“We are fortunate to have a retired Navy Captain living in our community,” said  Lt. Col. Bill Ivory, the unit’s Senior Naval Science Instructor.
