Staff Sergeant and above are typically upper class students and have shown the greatest potential from within the Panther Battalion.

NOTE: Cadets can also earn merits with good grades. It is up to the Cadet to bring in his/her report card to the JROTC instructor to receive merits for letter grades A, B, and C.
