Cadet Corner

Welcome to the cadet corner! 

Get to know your fellow cadets and how JROTC has helped them in school and everyday life.

C/CPT Patrick Young 

Jrotc has benefited me in everyday life because it has given me experience in my future career as a marine. Jrotc has also given me leadership experience I would have never gotten if I did not join the class. The people in the class are always super chill and easy to connect with, I have made lifelong friends among the cadets.

The best way to describe JROTC to me is GETTING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. I have been in JROTC since I was a freshman in high school. I remember my first few weeks of this class as a freshman I was intimidated by the older leaders and wanted to just fit in. JROTC has physically impacted me when I got hit in the nose with a softball by Colonel Rosenberry, but it has also helped me mentally when I have had to memorize drill movements and leadership tactics to prioritize my cadets. I hope YOU can use the enormous amount of resources you have in this class to help gain confidence and knowledge for yourself to find your purpose in this program.

JROTC has given me so many opportunities to grow as a leader and as a citizen. I’ve learned life skills like responsibility, managing, confidence, and attention to detail. The program has also taught me about teamwork and the joy of helping others. Over these past few years, I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought I would. Being in a military family, we move around a lot and it can be difficult to settle into some environments. But, in JROTC there is a place for everyone. It’s an inclusive community that has helped me get through high school as well as improve myself. I will be able to take everything that I’ve learned with me into my future schooling and career. I’m so grateful to have been a part of the JROTC community; I plan to continue onto college ROTC and join our nation’s armed forces.
