Welcome To the D.M. Therrell High Educational Complex ROTC Website
The D.M. Therrell High School JROTC Panther Battalion was established by General Orders N. 88, on July 1,1966.
Our first battalion commander was C/LTC Lawrence M. Stuck (1966-1967). Cadet Stuck gave his life for his country in the Vietnam War. The first female battalion commander was C/LTC Debra Neal (1986-1987)
This battalion is a member of a multiple unit program here in Atlanta,Ga.
Our Motto is...............
EXCELLENCE ABOVE ALL-MOTIVATED,DEDICATED,WE CAN DO IT
Through the years our unit has won numerous awards and championships. We had an 11 year run of having the Honor Distinction rating, which we are very proud of currently holding.
This unit continues to grow and to perform at high standards. We have been averaging approx. 500 cadets for the past 3 years. At one time, we were running two battalions and performing 14-15 Service Learning Projects a year.
We sponsor at least two educational trips a year where cadets visit historical sites and universities. We habve visited places such as: the Kennedy Space Center, Selma,Alabama;the Edmund Pettis Bridge,Beale Street, the Lorraine Motel, etc.
