LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Western New York Maritime Charter
School Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps upon the occasion of
its designation as a Distinguished Unit

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to commend those
illustrious institutions within the State of New York which have made a
substantial impact on the quality of life in their communities and whose
focus is on behalf of young people and their futures; and

standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Western New York Maritime Charter School Naval Junior Reserve Offi-
cer Training Corps upon the occasion of its designation as a Distin-
guished Unit; and
WHEREAS, The Western New York Maritime Charter School is a four year
public high school in Buffalo, New York; all students attending the
school are in the Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC),
a program that instills the Navy Core Values of Honor, Courage and
Commitment; and
WHEREAS, The Western New York Maritime Charter School Naval Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps Unit is in the top 20 percent of all
NJROTC Units in the nation; it has earned the Distinguished Unit with
academic honors designation for three years in a row, a testament to the
drive, determination and devotion of the institution and its cadets; and
WHEREAS, The purpose of the Western New York Maritime Charter School
Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps is to instill in students
the value of citizenship, service to the United States, personal respon-
sibility, and a sense of accomplishment; and
WHEREAS, The Western New York Maritime Charter School Naval Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps is clearly fulfilling its mission; the
current Battalion Commanding Officer received a Naval Reserve Officer
Training Corps scholarship to the Ohio State University, five Cadets are
going into Army Reserve Officer Training Corps next year, and eight
Cadets are enlisting into the Armed Services; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when insti-
tutions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be celebrated and recognized by all the citizens of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Western New York Maritime Charter School Naval Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps upon the occasion of its designation as a
Distinguished Unit; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Western New York Maritime Charter School Naval Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps.
