Lt. Col. Rooker, who leads our Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC) program here at APS, is spent a week earlier this month with high school cadets during their annual summer camp at at Fort Benning!
The JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge is held near Columbus, GA at the Fort Benning Army base and gives our high school JROTC cadets a chance to test their endurance and stamina. From citizenship-building exercises to learning military skills in a real military environment – our students push themselves and return home with a new perspective on learning and leadership.
Be sure to check out Col Rooker on Twitter at @rmrooker or https://twitter.com/rmrooker where he has posted lots of great photos and updates on our fearless students. Nice job cadets!
