Johnson student earns National Army ROTC scholarship

Johnson High School JROTC cadet Emma Harrymen has been awarded a four-year National Army ROTC scholarship. The scholarship process is extremely competitive and considers SAT transcripts, written essays, a physical fitness assessment and an interview with a Professor of Military Science. 

Harrymen scored high in all of her academic tests, as well as the physical portion of the testing process. She maxed out during her minute of push ups and sit ups with scores of 40 and 50, as well as completing her one-mile run with a time of seven minutes and 58 seconds. Harrymen plans to attend Baylor University in 2019. 

“Baylor University is the one college that stood out to me being a very small school, Christian oriented and also close to home and my family,” said Harrymen.

Accepting the National Army ROTC scholarship comes with a four-year active duty commitment and four years of Inactive Ready Reserve.
