14 "Panther Pride" Bn Cadets Graduate From Junior Cadet Leadership Challenge
On 22 June 2012 Morehead High School Army JROTC “Panther Pride Battalion” had 14 cadets graduate from the Junior Cadet Leadership Challenge at Oak Ridge Military Academy. After five days of battling the heat and being evaluated on areas of physical fitness, leadership, land navigation, rifle marksmanship, drown proofing, rappelling and obstacle course the cadets graduated with the intent of bringing the leadership skills they were taught and what they learned from this camp back to Morehead High School for the next school year.
Several cadets were recognized for being the top cadets in land navigation (Meghan Leonard) and in swimming (Bryton Bluth). Other cadets in attendance were: Anthony Paul, Jacob Harris, Justin Rogers, Megan Hurley, Brandon Johnson, Matthew Coe, Mitchell Mason, Breyanna Wilson, Dionicia Alvarez, Alondra Morales, Logan Booth and Amber Kernodle.
Chaperone Shelia Thompson, teacher at Morehead HS was presented a plaque from the camp commander for her outstanding efforts in support of the camp.
