Cadets from Buckingham County High School’s JROTC program recently participated on one of the nation’s premier leadership camps. The JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge (JCLC) Eagle is located on the Army National Guard Maneuver Training Center, Fort Pickett. The camp combines hands-on leadership training as students participate in a series of activities ranging from orienteering to rappelling to an obstacle course to survival skills. During the camp, special honors were presented to Cadet Destiny Sutton for being the top female out of 112 girls in the mile run. Cadets Trenton Houser and Morgan Pugh also received special recognition for their leadership skills displayed at camp. We commend the JROTC cadets for their willingness to continue learning during the summer months and for well representing Buckingham County well. Pictured are, from left, Pugh, Sutton and Houser.
