The Marine Corps League Maj. Gen. Warren R. Johnson Detachment 1311 in Woodstock is partnering with the Cherokee County Board of Education to provide annual cash awards to outstanding graduating Junior Reserve Officer Training (JROTC) cadets, and assist with and participate in Veterans Day programs and other various school functions.

The school district will nominate deserving JROTC cadets for the Detachment to consider for scholarships, provide the use of certain facilities, promote the Detachment’s programs and explore and pursue joint grant opportunities in both parties’ best interest, League officials said in a statement.

The agreement runs through June 13, 2024, and will automatically renew for additional terms not to exceed five years.

The Marine Corps League voluntarily renders assistance to active and veteran Marines and to their widows and orphans, and works to perpetuate the history of the Marine Corps by observing the anniversaries of historical occasions of particular interest to Marines.

The Detachment meets at 9 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month at the Semper Fi Bar & Grille, 9770 Main St., Woodstock.
