Johnson JROTC Cadet receives commander's recognition

Colonel James E. Dodson, Commander, 5th ROTC Brigade, United States Army Cadet Command recognized Cadet Major Duncan Pawloski, a student at Johnson High School for being the Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) Best Air Rifle Marksman for 2013. Colonel Dodson awarded Duncan his Commander’s “Challenge” Coin for Excellence and a Commander’s Certificate of Achievement for being a true Junior Air Rifle National Champion.

Additionally, Colonel Dodson spoke to the assembled Jaguar JROTC Battalion about leadership and citizenship and what it takes to be a champion. He encouraged all to pursue higher levels of education.
Duncan earned the National title at the 2013 Army JROTC Air Rifle National Championships held in Layton, Utah earlier this year. In this national shoulder-to-shoulder championship, Duncan scored 1266.8 points out of a possible 1309 points over a two-day competition that included a final standing match for the top eight marksmen. Duncan out shot 2,181 Army JROTC air rifle marksmen to earn the National Championship title.

As Team Captain, Duncan looks forward to leading his team the 2013 Civilian Marksmanship (CMP) Junior Three-Position Air Rifle National Championships to be held in Anniston, Alabama from July 11-14. The Johnson Precision Air Rifle Team qualified for this completion at the 2013 Junior Air Rifle Western Region Championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico last April by placing in a 6th place finish.
Duncan will attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona this fall semester and pursue a degree in aeronautical science.
