JROTC Cadet attends KSBS

By Julian Kincaid Staters Union With a patriotic organization such as the American Legion running Boys’ State, it’s no surprise that cadets in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps are in attendance. The JROTC program uses military values to instill good leadership and citizenship within cadets and encourages them to use those values to in their everyday lives – this, coincidentally, is one of the same goals of Boys’119A6715 State. This makes the camp a breeding ground for tomorrow’s successful leaders, both civilian and military. One such cadet in attendance is Cadet Colonel Nathaniel Strifler of Wichita North High’s Army Junior ROTC program. As Wichita JROTC Corps Commander, he is in charge of approximately 2400 middle school and high school-age cadets. With a role like this comes massive responsibility, a leadership principle with which Strifler is becoming experienced. “I look forward to such a leading so many people, and I hope this experience will help me on my journey into the military.” said C/Col Strifler. His future plans are to finish out his senior year at Wichita North High School, after which he plans to major in Engineering at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.]]>
