A group of incoming cadets spent several hours on our campus challenging themselves to see if they could handle JROTC. Their first test began when they were faced with the Battalion
XO, Savannah Edwards, who briefly introduced herself and offered them cupcakes. All of them passed. The next test was when the Brigade Commander, Katherine Solchaga, made them play icebreakers with each other. It was a long and grueling event, but everyone survived. Once again, everyone was offered cupcakes. This was when the physical challenges began. The staff brought the newbies outside in the harsh, cold shade to learn basic drill movements. After being deemed worthy, they were offered cupcakes...once again. Cadets spent the rest of their time learning about the Archery and Armed Drill teams. Before leaving, they had pizza and cupcakes. The Basic Leadership Training was a success, a day filled with cupcakes and cadets, who were eager to learn!
