Lakeview JROTC cadets complete Leadership Course

Five Lakeview Jr/Sr High School Air Force JROTC cadets just completed a week-long, 24 hr/day, Cadet Leadership Course this past week at Grambling State University. The summer course matures and prepares students to take on leadership roles within the cadet corps at their school. During this exciting and rewarding week they focused on teamwork, following instructions, and attention to detail. They started their days at 5 AM each morning with physical fitness training before transitioning over to other events and classes. The remainder of their day included dormitory inspection preparation, academic testing preparation, and teambuilding activities such as Drill Competition, Water Survival, a Confidence Course, Orienteering, Field Activities, and more.

The week concluded Saturday morning with a military style Parade (Pass In Review), followed by graduation and awards ceremonies. The five cadets who graduated the course, pictured left to right, were: Sophia Kerry, Peyton Cunningham, Colie Killingsworth, Natalee Lebrun, and Sydney Thompson. Lakeview also brought home some awards from this course. Cadet Colie Killingsworth graduated in the top of her class and was selected as a Distinguished Graduate, Cadet Sophia Kerry was a member of the team that earned the Warrior Flight award, and Cadet Peyton Cunningham was a member of the team that earned the Honor Flight award.
