Lt. Col. Allen West will visit United States Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) unit at Arkansas High School the same day of the event. Major Gary L.

West visits with a local JROTC unit to present a scholarship as part of every Allen West Foundation event.

In the tenth grade Allen West joined the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program. Congressman West received his Bachelor's degree while on an ROTC scholarship at the University of Tennessee and later went on to get a Master's degree from Kansas State University, both in political science, and entered the United States Army in 1983 when he graduated from the University of Tennessee. Congressman West was the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year in 1993 and he accredits the JROTC with forming the basis for his life of service and commitment to the nation. He firmly believes that education is the great equalizer and that with a good education any child in America can live his or her dream. To that end the Allen West Foundation was formed as Congressman West’s legacy; to educate, engage and inspire the next generation of conservative leaders.

About The Allen West Foundation: The Allen West Foundation was established in January, 2013, to educate, engage and inspire the next generation of conservative veteran, minority and female leaders. In addition to directly supporting organizations such as Young Marines, Junior ROTC and Navy Sea Cadets, the Foundation conducts various forums, educational events and leadership training seminars across the country.
