A cadet is a trainee being trained to become an officer in the military and being a leader of character while learning civility and citizenship in order to become better citizens, along with service to our community. Cadets must wear their uniform once a week while serving on the drill team, working on academic bowl, learning leadership or serving at football games while going to high school and college. They are taught teamwork in order to have a better attitude, conduct and behavior.
