JROTC Obstacle Course
Course is funded
By JERRY LEITZELL
Fort Knox Community Schools
The Fort Knox Community Schools recently received $175,000 to construct a JROTC obstacle course adjacent to Bldg. 7474A, near Scott Middle School, said Tim Adkisson, FKCS Facilities Operations Specialist. The course will include 15 obstacles aimed at improving physical fitness. Prime contractor is All Cities. Construction will begin within 90 days with completion within one year.
The course will support Fort Knox High School’s Raider team, a JROTC-sponsored extracurricular activity open to all cadets.
Retired Chief Warrant Officer 4 Scott Akin, the high school’s JROTC senior Army instructor, said, “Additionally, other school teams can use this course for team building exercises. We intend this program to be a model for the rest of the country; an obstacle course will allow us to host a quality Raider meet every year and showcase our school and program.”

Macdonald Intermediate School’s third annual 5k run/walk will be held Nov. 3 at 8 a.m. The route starts at school, loops around the post, and finishes back at Macdonald, Bldg. 7729, 128 McCracken St.
You may obtain a registration form in any Fort Knox Community School and in Gammon, Natcher, and Smith gyms. Registration cost $20. If three or more family members participate, then the cost is $15, if all registration forms are turned in at the same time.
Return the completed form(s) to the office in Macdonald School. Everyone who signs up before Saturday will receive a free T-shirt. The awards in the run/walk will be medals for first, second and third place winners in each age group, both male and female.
