ROTC: - Col. Potts
Air Force Junior ROTC is more than a five credit elective course - it
is a life experience. The objective of the course is to develop
responsible, productive and informed citizens who will be future
leaders, managers and supervisors. The course is available to any high
school student grades 9 through 12. Students enrolled in this course are
called cadets and are basically leaders in training. It is actually an
operational organization with the same functions and mission
requirements found in any Air Force unit or civilian corporation.
Consequently, cadets get hands-on experience dealing with real life
issues they will face in the military or civilian work force. There are
people and resources to manage, meetings to attend, time lines to
monitor, deadlines to meet, paperwork to accomplish and projects to
plan, organize and complete.
Classroom sessions present cadets with exiting opportunities to learn
about the history of flight, principles of basic aeronautics, space
exploration and world geography. They'll also learn life skills such as
human relations, racism, sexism, public speaking techniques, principles
of leadership and functions of management. Cadets strengthen their
character while living by an Honor Code and embracing values of
integrity, courage, patriotism, competence, tenacity and service within
a structured and disciplined Air Force format. Simultaneously, they will
learn and carry out the traditions, customs and courtesies practiced in
the Air Force. Finally, extracurricular activities such as drill teams,
color guards, the military ball, field trips to various military
installations including the U.S. Military and Naval Academies, and
orientation flights on military aircraft round out the curriculum and
give cadets additional opportunities to practice the skills learned in
