AFJROTC:

The goal of the AFJROTC program is to instill in high school cadets the values of:

 

(1) Citizenship (2) Service to the United States (3) Personal Responsibility, and (4) A Sense of Accomplishment

 


 

 

LAKEVIEW HIGH SCHOOL AIR FORCE  JROTC, LA-943

 

Lakeview’s Air Force Junior ROTC (AFJROTC) is an award winning program, attaining the Distinguished Unit Award for the last 4 years.  The program provides citizenship training and aerospace studies for high school students.   

The program is led by a retired Air Force Officer, Major Bob Kellogg, and a retired Non-Commissioned Officer, Technical Sergeant Kenny Minchew, who are teachers for the Natchitoches Parish School Board and Certified by the State of Louisiana.  The classroom curriculum includes aerospace studies (aviation history, exploration of space, global and cultural studies, aerospace science, and financial management), leadership, wellness/fitness, and character development. 

 

The Lakeview Cadet Group, LA-943, is one of over 900 similar AFJROTC units worldwide and has been a part of the Natchitoches community since 1994. Their mission is to “Develop Citizens of Character Dedicated to Serving their Nation and Community.”  Lakeview students recognize the opportunities that exist in this challenging and rewarding program, with 25% of the Lakeview students becoming cadets.  Cadets are given the opportunity to gain discipline, leadership, teamwork, and organizational skills through involvement in extracurricular activities, including:  parades, color guard, drill teams, field studies, community/school service, a formal military ball, quarterly awards and recognition programs, the Veterans Day program, Annual Awards Ceremony, Honor Flight Field Day, and Summer Leadership School.

 

In school year 07-08, Lakeview’s cadets performed over 4,000 service hours, over 40 color guard performances, marched in 4 parades, competed in 3 state-wide drill meets (winning 11 trophies), and completed a 3-day curriculum in action trip to Fort Worth, Texas. 

 

Participation in AFJROTC does not commit or obligate any student to military service.  However, a cadet that successfully completes the required years of instruction may qualify for advanced rank upon enlistment into a service, compete more favorably for 4-year college ROTC scholarships, and have an increased chance for an appointment to one of the service academies.
