I received my official Kitty Hawk Air Society certificate. The Kitty Hawk Air Society (KHAS) is the Honor Society for the AFJROTC program. The purpose of the KHAS is to further instill cadet Leadership and Teamwork qualities. In a manner similar to other Honor Societies, “Kitty Hawkers” are required to maintain a 3.0 weighted GPA with no grade below a “C”. Specific KHAS objectives are: to promote higher academic standards; be of service to the school and community; promote excellence, integrity, and initiative; develop leadership ability; encourage academic excellence, and further educational development in post high school years. KHAS members also serve in key leadership positions throughout the corps.

I had the honor to restarting this program at Yucaipa High Schoool

This is going to be a quick post because I have a ton of calculus homework to finish this evening and do some studying for my ACT exam this Saturday.

I just got back from Yucaipa City Council meeting and found out I was appointed to the Yucaipa Youth Commission for the  City of Yucaipa for the 2013-2014 Term.

I am looking forward to learning more about the City and helping with youth issues in the City. I have a couple ideas I hope to get implemented while on the commission.

Well, that’s all for today. Off to do my AP Calculus homework.

This weekend I had the pleasure of working with my friend, Ventura Wilson on his Eagle Project. His projected consisted of building a Labyrinth at my church, Unity of Yucaipa in Yucaipa, California.

This was an awesome project and once it was done it looked beautiful.

We had at least 50+ scouts, parents, and even my JRTOC cadets came down to help with this project. This was 16 hours of community service time that goes fast and is a lot of fun.

Congrats Ventura, looking forward to seeing you in the Eagles Nest!

2013 Air Force JROTC Summer Leadership School Completed

DSCF6090

I just completed SLS (Summer Leadership School) for our Air Force JROTC program. Originally, I wasn’t planning on attending this summer program, but week opened up and we cancelled our family trip to Washington State.

So I figured another week of Summer Leadership School is where I needed to be.

It was held at March Air Force Base here in Southern California. This year I was the Deputy Group Commander. I learned a lot of great leadership skills and got to practise some leadership skills.

Now it’s time to pack up and get ready for Devil Pups. I leave on Monday.

Air Force JROTC Summer Leadership School

120727-F-BD983-009

This morning I left for March Air Force Base here in California to attend my JROTC Summer Leadership School(SLS). I was not planning on attending this summer do to my busy schedule.

My parents decided last minute to postpone our road trip to Washington State so I decided I needed to attend SLS.

It should be a lot of fun and informative. I’ll catch up with some of my JROTC and school friends who are attending. This is a week long leadership camp.

I get home Saturday and then ship out to Camp Pendleton to attend Devil Pup as Eagle.

Until next time,
Andrew

The last few days of school are going to be busy. I just finished up my Physics final yesterday and found out I will get an “A” in my Physics Class.

I have a serious chance of getting straight “A” this semester. I still have an “A” in Trig, “B+” in English, “A” in World Geography, and “B+” in History. “A” JROTC

It’s going to come down to my finals next week.

I am also studying for my ACT exam on Saturday and training for Candidate Fitness Test at The United States Naval Academy.

I leave for Annapolis a week from today. Wish me luck!
