By almost any measure, McNary High School’s Air Force Junior Reserves Officers’ Training Corps (AFJROTC) has been a resounding success.

In just its first semester as part of the school’s offerings, the program has attracted more than 100 students and proven it can stand among the region’s best.

“It’s kind of stressful going in and competing with teams that have been around longer, but we’re stacking up nicely,” said Lt. Col. Ethan Vansell, a senior and the McNary unit commander.
