Five Los Alamos High School NJROTC cadets had the honor June 21 of talking to six midshipmen from the U.S Naval Academy at the Otowi Cafeteria at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The Midshipmen talked to the NJROTC cadets about naval life. The meeting was helpful and informational to the cadets, as several of them are interested in attending the Naval Academy following graduation from Los Alamos High School.
The purpose of the NJROTC program is to help teenagers become great citizens, teach them responsibility, discipline and many other life skills they will need for life out of high school. This program gives students many opportunities to lead and succeed.
