Cadet Korrie Hurlen, a member of the Tuloso-Midway High School NJROTC unit, made history by becoming the first Tuloso-Midway cadet to ever receive the coveted Joseph C. Gilliam Award for Academic Excellence for NJROTC Area 10. Cadet Hurlen’s superior academic background earned him the title after fierce competition with every other NJROTC unit in the state. He now competes against the winners of the other eleven NJROTC Area winners for the national title. Cadet Hurlen was recently awarded a full-ride, US Army college scholarship to Georgia Military College worth approximately $200,000.
