August Cadets of the Month
Updated: Oct 25, 2022
Jonesborough- The Cadet Commanding Officer and Cadet Executive Officer of our unit choose a male and a female each month to get “Cadet of the Month.” They look only for the best well-dressed cadets. They also look at their attendance, participation, and performance.
These cadets have a reason that they have joined ROTC or someone influenced them like Dakota Mathes. Dakota stated he wanted to join, “Because I wanted to get into shape and it looks good on a resume.” He says that his goals for the unit are, “I would like to get plenty of awards and rank up.” Alongside him for August Cadet of the Month is Harley Boehl. Boehl’s goal is, “Building strength and hardship.” Some cadets have parts of ROTC that they like the most such as Boehl: she states that she enjoys, “The people in the program/ the trips as well.”
We all get asked the question if we want to join the military. Mathes says, “...I might,” and Boehl says, “Maybe… It is a profession I’m interested in.” We all have certain goals in our life that we want to accomplish. If we don’t want to join the military we can go to college and start a family. Leading is a very important part of military life.
As I conclude, these cadets have the greatest honor in becoming Cadet of the Month. I hope they wear that cord with loyalty. I am very proud of our future cadets. I just know that they will go farther with their lives.
