New Herndon High School Junior ROTC Cadets Learn Important Lessons at Camp

Herndon High School freshmen who are joining the school’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps learned all about the program last week during a New Cadet Introductory Course camp.

The incoming cadets learned how to march, how to wear and care for their uniforms, and how to handle a rifle among other valuable lessons. In addition, they participated in community service, including a cleanup of Dranesville Road near the school.

Students also learned the importance of physical fitness as a cadet, including through completion of an obstacle course.

Awards were presented to the top-performing cadets for academics, drill and physical fitness during the orientation course.
