Lakeview High School and their Air Force JROTC Cadet Corps hosted a representative from Headquarters Air Force JROTC on Oct. 9, to conduct a day-long evaluation of their cadet corps. This intensive evaluation included school and parish support of the program, curriculum reviews, instructor teaching, cadet inspections, drill evaluations, inventory management, community service, cadet “ownership” of Leadership Development Requirement activities, and an hour-long cadet unit mission briefing. This type of unit evaluation occurs every 3 years. For the 4th time in a row, Lakeview’s Air Force JROTC received the highest rating possible, “Exceeds Standards”, which is normally attained by the top 25% of the 950 units worldwide.
