The top 45 cadets of Lakeview High School Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC) conducted a Curriculum in Action Trip to Joint Readiness Base (JRB) on May 20-22 in Fort Worth, Texas. Selection for the trip was based on the Cadets’ positive behavior in academics, uniform wear, attendance, tardies, discipline, community/school service, and physical fitness for the entire school year. The purpose of the visit was to reinforce aerospace science, aviation history, and leadership education learning objectives from this academic year. The cadets were also introduced to numerous military and civilian career opportunities and were able to watch aircraft pre-flights, taxi, and take-offs. The trip also allowed the senior cadets to gain hands on experience in leadership, teamwork, and communication.
The JRB tour included tours of aircrew life support facilities, an F-16 maintenance depot, an Apache helicopter maintenance facility, and an aircraft munitions maintenance loading area. Cadets were provided hands on learning of supplemental oxygen systems, egress systems, survival equipment, aircraft flight control surfaces, maintenance procedures, and weapons capabilities. The cadets also planned and conducted leadership activities including a visit to the base indoor aquatic pool. The trip was sponsored and supervised by Major (Ret) Bob Kellogg, Lakeview’s Senior Aerospace Science Instructor. Chaperones were Mrs. Lona Frazier, Mrs. Danielle Sullivan, and Mrs. Cindy Kellogg.
