Cadet of the Month

Allison B. Hudson

Favorite subject and hobbies: My favorite subjects are Math and English. My hobbies are

playing volleyball and doing events/services that pertain to JROTC.

Future Plans: After high school I plan to attend college at either Nicholls State or LSU majoring in Nursing. I am also thinking about a career in the Air Force as a Nurse.

Why JROTC? Honestly, in the 8th grade I did not think I would join JROTC. After working concession and talking with Major Bailey and TSgt Jones I decided to join and I support my decision 100 percent.

What do you like about the program? I like the program because it puts you in a real life situation. You don’t just learn about the military you learn about jobs and respecting others. It is a stepping-stone for preparing yourself for when you graduate.

What are your goals in the program? My goal is to obtain a Cadet Command Staff position by my senior year and possibly receive a full scholarship with a senior ROTC program.

If you can spread the word to others to join JROTC, what would you say? In JROTC our motto is “To motivate young people to be better citizen.” This program is for anyone with leadership potential and also those in need of a little discipline.

I would like to thank Major Bailey and TSgt Jones for all of their work and support for the cadets and the program.

What Technical Sergeant Jones had to say about Musco…

What makes her stand out amongst her peers as far a personality? Destiny is another cadet that any teacher would love to have around. She never hesitates to offer assistance. Destiny is one of those students that want to stay on top of her grades. She can also be a character in class as well, very funny and dramatic. She gives teachers a reason to want to work always asking what more she can do to improve herself and her grades.

How is she as a person? Destiny doesn’t complain when it is time to go that extra mile for the betterment of her self and the program. She has been arriving to school early to practice drill procedures for the upcoming Unit Inspection, she also encourages her peers to do the same.

How does he measure against others in academics? In order to be a finalist for Cadet of the Month we use the whole person concept (the same is done in the military). We review the cadets’ class absences, tardies, referrals, community services, activities, as well as dress and appearance and finally overall academic score in JROTC. The classroom standard is not only for JROTC but for all classes. A cadet can be removed from the finalist list for misbehavior in any other class. We are preparing better citizens for our future.
