Cadets from the White Mountains Regional High School's JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps) Program completed the Leadership Challenge Weekend at Norwich University in Northfield, Vt. Dec. 9-11. The program is designed to expose college-bound students to a military college lifestyle, while providing a challenging leadership experience through the development of individual leadership skills, self-confidence and teamwork.
Students learn how to become a part of a team, communicate effectively, lead and follow. The program includes a Leadership Reaction Course, leadership and effective communications exercises, physical fitness training, climbing wall, and a water survival class. Students are required to meet strict academic, character, and leadership qualities to attend.
With over 1150 cadets and 800 students, Norwich is the nation's oldest senior military college and is considered the home of the Reserve Officer Training Corps Program (ROTC).
