Company Commander senior Joseph Price said that JROTC follows a set up leadership plan. It allows each of the cadets to gain more leading experience.

“The students lead the class rather than the instructor,” Price said.

There were many leadership positions, some require more time and dedication like Company Commander,   Executive Officer, and First Sergeant. The positions are chosen the year before to start the year with a set up chain of command.

“The Company Commander from last year, Titan Cleveland, and I chose who would be the Executive Officer and the First Sergeant. This year as it started, I formed the squads and chose the squad leaders,” Price said.

There was a schedule set up for each day of the week. The schedule was based on the needs of the company.

“It is really important to develop leadership skills like loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage,” Price said.

In the future there will be many changes in JROTC because this will be the last year the program is given here at Capital. Only one school in the district will be offering JROTC but Capital students will be still allowed to join.

“I think it will only get better as the year goes on. It’s been always getting better. It becomes more competitive with the other companies but we always learn from our mistakes to gain more leadership skills,” Price said.

Sophomore Francis Renzi said that working together as a company in JROTC here at Capital was amazing. Everybody works together to develop teamwork.

“You get to meet people who you can trust and also you get to see how everybody is outside of school. Doing team work with them is just really fun,” Renzi said.

Capital’s JROTC company has the best leaders who are willing to work extra hard for their community. JROTC was not only to develop leadership skills but also to meet new people.

“Everybody was nice here, they were also willing to help you anytime you needed them,” Renzi said.

To join JROTC having military plans after high school is not necessary. JROTC can also help you get more life experience.

“If you have plans on joining the military, in JROTC they will explain what opportunities are open for you,” Renzi said.

In the future Renzi would like to continue in the program and learn more about leadership.

“JROTC was a lot of fun, you learn, your help the community, and you also get to learn more about military opportunities,” Renzi said.
