Dedicated Staff

MSG J.B., SMA JROTC instructor

Watching young, timid, new cadets grow into mature, confident leaders is my favorite part of teaching at SMA. When we take the cadets to area Raider competitions, the difference between our kids and other schools’ kids is night and day. SMA’s student body is MUCH more well-behaved and respectful.
