Our cadets stand out among their peers as ethical, confident, physically fit, and academically dedicated young men and women. In April 2013, we again earned Distinguished Unit status. In fact, Silver Creek has earned Distinguished Unit the past six years in a row, is considered the best unit in all of Northern and Central California, and is one of the top schools of the 620 high school programs in the world.
During the 2012-2013 school year, the unit's 109 cadets performed 2902 community service hours and Major Chuck Reed presented Silver Creek with a San Jose City Council Letter of Commendation and a plaque for their community service. In August of this year Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese also presented the unit with a Letter of Commendation for their community service excellence.
The Valley of San Jose Scottish Rite center presented Master Chief Howell with its Non-Commissioned Officer Instructor of the Year Award (2013).
NJROTC was awarded a "Bravo Zulu" pennant and earned the highest rating on our annual Area Manager Inspection (2013). The unit received an overall grade of "Outstanding."
