Army may shut down smaller programs

By John Barnhart

    Bedford’s JROTC program risks being cancelled by the Army.
    That’s the word Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Payne brought to the school board Thursday night. Lt. Col. Payne, along with Sergeant Major Lenny Hutton teach the program, which is based at Bedford Science and Technology Center (BSTC).
    Lt. Col. Payne said JROTC was originally started in 1916 to prepare students for college level ROTC programs. In 1964, its focus changed from preparation to enter the Army to citizenship.
