The Cavalier Battalion
The Cavalier Battalion, established in 1985 by LTC Joel Parker, has maintained a tradition of success in leadership, academics, and athletics since its establishment twenty nine years ago. The Cavalier Battalion has had an outstanding record here at Dorman High School and has become a positive influence to the students of Dorman as well as the communities of surrounding areas in Upstate South Carolina. JROTC's mission, which we strive to accomplish at all times, is to motivate young people to become better citizens. Here in the Cavalier Battalion we are dedicated to fulfilling this fundamental task which we believe we accomplish by providing our cadets with realistic and applicable leadership skills, facilitating active participation in our school and community, and promoting positive life choices and academics. Our yearly statistics show that we are indeed living up to our mission.
