Congratulations Cadets
SHS is proud to announce the completion of the highly-selective 2015 AFJROTC Cadet Leadership Course for over 20 cadets.  These cadets successfully accomplished a rigorous 1-week long program bringing them together with the best-of-the-best from ten other high school AFJROTC units.  They were tested in their physical fitness, endurance, leadership, and character.  It was a grueling program where they were pushed to their physical and mental limits...We could not be more proud of all of them for their accomplishment!

In addition to the great accomplishment of completing the course, we had a number of standouts that earned additional awards at the Leadership School:

Honor Flight:  This was the #1 Flight for the entire encampment and was commanded by Ian Martin.
