North Paulding High School JROTC Pushes Boundaries at JCLC
Story by: Cadet C/2LT Lang, North Paulding High School's S-5 | August 24th, 2018
NPHS JROTC from Dallas, Georgia, is an outstanding leadership program that doesn't just stop when the school year does as it teaches leadership throughout the summer. This summer's Junior Cadet Leadership Camp (JCLC) took place for four days at the beautiful campus of Georgia Military College. Cadets were pushed out of their comfort zones, meeting new Cadets from programs all over the state and gaining valuable lessons that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Our Cadets were able to participate in many challenging activities that include; rock-wall climbing, rappelling off 50-foot towers, canoeing a two-mile-long lake, and conquering a boot camp style obstacle course.
These Cadets, strangers at first, became team members able to complete all these challenges. Cadet Command Sergeant Major Ahrien Johnson earned the Superior Cadet award at the end of the camp. However, every Cadet who entered JCLC left with quality leadership skills, new connections, and challenging experiences to better themselves. Thank you, Lt. Col. Lesnieski and MSG Briggs for your dedication and leadership.
