Why JROTC? I chose JROTC because I saw it as an opportunity to gain characteristics that would help me in life.

What do you like about the program? I like the people in this program and the way we help out the community.

What are your goals in the program? My goals in this program are to stay and be on cadet staff by my senior year.

If you can spread the word to others to join JROTC, what would you say? I would say that JROTC is a good program that gives you responsibility enforces discipline and structure.

You learn a great deal of new things in class and you are given the chance to get out of your element and go other places to learn even more.

Technical Sergeant Jones:

What makes her stand out amongst her peers as far a personality? Chelsie is very quiet and reserve young lady. She is one who never hesitates to ask you if you need any help. She is always eager to improve not only herself but her peers as well.

How is she as a person? Chelsie doesn’t complain when it is time to go that extra mile for the betterment of herself and the program. She has been staying after school to practice drill procedures for the upcoming final exam, 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.
