Mount Olive AFJROTC Student Selected for Prestigious Cyber Academy

Bryan Thomas, a 10th grade Air Force Junior ROTC cadet at Mount Olive High School has received a scholarship to participate in the Air Force Junior ROTC Cyber Academy during the summer of 2021. The scholarship is funded through a partnership between Headquarters Air Force Junior ROTC and the National Science Foundation.  


Bryan is one of 100 Air Force Junior ROTC cadets from around the world to receive the scholarship. There are more than 125,000 high school students enrolled in Air Force Junior ROTC at almost 900 high schools in the U.S. and overseas. The scholarship funds a six week, three credit hours college course and is valued at approximately $8,000. 


The Cyber Academy Scholarship Program is designed to generate interest in a vital and valuable skillset that is lacking in our country. Cadets will be engaged in daily coursework, homework, discussions, and have opportunities to hear from prominent Cyber/IT professionals. The program will also provide cadets an opportunity to test for Cyber or IT industry certifications. Those who participate in the program do not incur a military commitment to the Air Force or other branches of service, nor does completing the program signify acceptance into one of the military’s commissioning programs. 


The mission of Air Force Junior ROTC is to develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and community, while instilling values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility and sense of accomplishment. When looking to fill tomorrow’s career needs with the best candidates, there is simply no better place for the nation to look than Air Force Junior ROTC!
