The annual inspection is an assessment is required by the Commander of Navy Education Training Command that tests the cadets on basic JROTC knowledge and skills and also evaluates the overall JROTC program.
The assessment began with a personnel inspection conducted by Captain Rosario McWhorter, the Commanding Officer for Navy Submarines Torpedo Facility Command (NAVSUBTURFAC), Yorktown, Va. Capt. McWhorter and the crew of Naval Weapons Station Yorktown inspected every all cadet uniforms for proper wear and maintenance. They also asked basic NJROTC questions.
"We're trying to give the cadets a feel for a Naval Inspection," said McWhorter.
Cadet Lt. Cmdr. Alex Cordon, the commands NJROTC Company Commander at Booker T. Washington High School, ensuring the company staff and platoon commanders are working efficiently. Cadet Cordon said that his time spent with the program and as the company commander has helped him grow as a person, how to give back to his community and show his love for being a “Booker”. In addition, I would like to thank the Booker T. Washington High School Friends and Family Alumni Foundation for their generous monetary donation made to our NJROTC unit this year. “Bookers taking care of Bookers”.
"I've learned a lot," said Cordon. "I've come along ways as a person, and I believe that everyone else that has come through this program has done the same.
"It's a really enjoyable experience. I remember all the great experiences I had freshman through senior year, and it's a great leadership building [experience]."
After the inspection, Captain McWhorter, Commander Officer, NAVSUBTURFAC, presented awards to the platoon with the most outstanding uniforms, promotions and NJROTC awards. He also spoke about the opportunities available to the cadets though the NJROTC program and life.
"It's inspiring. I hope they recognize the opportunities that are ahead of them," said McWhorter.
"They have a lead on everybody else, and there's no reason that somebody out of this group couldn't be the master chief petty officer of the Navy, the Chief of Naval Operations or the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps."
The NJROTC was created to help develop good citizenship and patriotism in secondary school students. The program aims to develop self-reliance and leadership as well as help improve a student's ability to communicate well both orally and in writing.

The following message and pictures were sent to The Booker T. Washington Friends and Alumni Foundation Incorporation (BTWFAAFI) by the Booker T Washington High School’s Athletic Director; Ms Robin D. Williams.
Booker T Washington High School athletics would like to thank our Alumni Association (BTWFAAFI) for their annual contribution for our baseball/softball program. Each year our alumni association purchase tickets for all members of our baseball/softball teams to attend a Tide’s baseball game. This year; 35 tickets were purchased. The softball/baseball teams and coaches enjoyed a great game and fellowship at Tide Stadium. This experience would not have been possible without the continued support of the BTWFAAFI and we’re very grateful and appreciate their support. (Athletic Director Ms Robin D Williams).
The following message is from BTWFAAFI Board Member Mr. Ashley D Avery. He along with the help of the former NSU Baseball Coach Mr. Claudel Clark though it would be a great idea to expose the BTW baseball program to a professional experience. Mr. Tim Hayes was the BTW “AD” doing that time. Mr. Fred “Flat Top” Hood joined me in providing personal funds and convinced the foundation that the professional experience was worthy of additional funding. Ms Robin Williams is the current “AD” and adopted the concept. BTW for life.
Booker T Washington High School Friends and Alumni Foundation Inc. (BTWFAAFI) supporting The 900 Men Strong Breakfast which is one of the East Coast’s largest events exclusively for Men. Its purpose is to galvanize Men in our community to make a difference through education and to assist with decreasing the high school dropout rate of African American youth and others. The mission is to provide scholarships to High School Boys who are seniors with a 2.5 GPA or better and who are planning to pursue a post-secondary education.
During this Breakfast at least five $1,000 scholarships was awarded to high school male students who are working toward achieving academic excellence on a post-secondary level. They also honored the contributions from several distinguished men, who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of our community. These were dedicated men who have made outstanding contributions toward helping our youth and others throughout the Hampton Roads community.
Each year the breakfast has successfully galvanized Men throughout Hampton Roads who are being role models to young men by attending the breakfast. This year's breakfast has once again had a special collaboration of Law Enforcement and Youth in attendance to strengthen the relationship between law enforcement and youth in our communities. Your support is vital to increasing the post secondary scholarship opportunities to high school seniors and reducing the up to 50% annual drop out rates of young men across the nation leaving high school each year.
