Over the summer our NJROTC program sent five deserving cadets to Navy’s prestigious JROTC “Leadership Academy” at Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, GA.  Selected students included: KMHS Commanding Officer, c/LCDR Nick Lambros, Admin Officer, c/PO2 Brandon Griffin, Platoon Commander, c/Ensign Michael Miles, Platoon Commander, c/PO3 Carson Michael, and our Operations Officer, c/LTJG Jordan Richard attended as a Cadre. The seven day course of study tested their knowledge, drill, and physical fitness as well as honed in on leadership skill devolpment. At graduation, the cadets were presented with their unique silver cords designating them as graduates of this program.

“It was an amazing learning experience we will carry for the rest of our lives” says Our Commanding Officer, Nick Lambros. They took the week of July 11-17 out of their summer to show other schools what Kennesaw Mountain NJROTC can do and they succeeded. All five of the cadets who went graduated from leadership academy and earned their silver cords. Way to go guys!
