GREAT LAKES, Ill. – Naval Service Training Command (NSTC) held its annual 2019 NJROTC Leadership Academy and Sail Training from June 10-15.
Cadets in grades 10 and 11 from over 20 high schools in six different Midwestern states participated in the week-long course. These cadets will be the leaders of their NJROTC units in the 2019-2020 academic year.
More than 25 NJROTC Area Three Naval Science Instructors (NSIs), staff and former academy cadets led the program. The goal is to prepare cadets to be unit leaders by teaching unique leadership characteristics which may not be available or taught at their home unit.
