Degrees and Certifications:
BSIE Texas A&M ME Old Dominion University
My name is Commander Jeff Williams and I’m the Senior Naval Science Instructor here at Red Oak High School. I had a rewarding 22-year career in Naval Aviation as a member of the P-3C community where I accumulated over 3000 flight hours during six squadron tours. I also served on board two aircraft carriers including a tour as a “shooter” on the USS Eisenhower. I have an engineering degree from Texas A&M and I have a Master of Education from Old Dominion University.
Navy JROTC is about citizenship, teamwork, and leadership. We are a student run organization that gives everyone a chance to be part of a team and it provides opportunities to lead that team. We have a diverse curriculum based on academics in the Naval Sciences and physical education (students get PE credit in JROTC). We also concentrate on drill as this reinforces our focus areas by teaching students teamwork, attention to detail, and self-discipline. Our students also enjoy the benefits of being part of something that provides an instant connection to Red Oak High School. NJROTC students can attend football games together, compete in meets against other schools, they host a military ball, perform community service, attend orienteering campouts, practice marksmanship, and they can carry our nation’s flag at school and community events as a part of one of multiple Color Guard teams that we sponsor.
We have a very unique program that is run by retired Navy instructors with over 50 years of experience in leadership and education.
