AFJROTC Cadets just completed the first round of the College Options Foundation’s academic challenge. Twenty Cadets participated in the practice round and six cadets participated in the actual challenge. Nationwide 224 teams participated in this event. We were the only unit in the Nashville area to participate and one of only five out of 25 units to participate state wide. Globally only 25% of AFJROTC units participated. If the team makes it through round two, they will travel to Washington DC for the third round. Good luck ladies and gentlemen!
The Gear Up program hosted their first College Summit where they brought in 13 different colleges and programs to do presentations for the senior class. They also had students from White House Heritage and East Robertson participate. Each college had 15 minutes to spend with the students, then a new group would come in to their classroom. Students were able to get more quality information than the traditional college fair. They are looking forward to doing another College Summit event for the junior class in March.
