Duluth School District might cut ROTC funding
DULUTH - A Duluth program that propelled one student to a spot as guard for President Bush and another to a full scholarship at the U.S. Naval Academy is in danger of closing.
The Duluth School District is considering eliminating its Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, a citizenship program at the Secondary Technical Center, to help erase its $4.5 million budget deficit. NJROTC, which has lost students over the years, costs about $170,000 a year to run.
