Several students from the Porter High School AFJROTC program attended and graduated from the AFJROTC Cadet Leadership Camp at the University of Houston in June.

Twenty-four cadets graduated from the program and six cadets earned awards. Three of the students, Cadet 1st Lt. Dixie Schroeder, Cadet Major Gabriella Stoltz, and Cadet 2nd Lt. Bianca Chernoff, earned Distinguished Honor Graduate which is the top five percent of the 300 cadets that attended. Cadet 1st Lt. Samantha Rogers and Cadet 2nd Lt. Samantha Ledford earned Honor Graduate which is the top 10 percent. Cadet Major Dania Topete earned the fastest female mile time in the course finishing in six minutes and twenty seconds. Porter HS was the only school out of 17 to have multiple winners in the Distinguished Honor Graduate category.

 

Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Kaitlinn Brandon

 

In addition to the leadership camp, Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Kaitlinn Brandon was selected to attend the Chief of Staff of the Air Force Private Pilots Scholarship Program. She was one of 120 selected out of 120,000 cadets worldwide and was given a full scholarship to Auburn University this summer where she is currently earning her private pilot's license. She is only 16 so she will have her private pilot's license before her driver's license.

 

The group also had three cadets that were selected to travel with the Click Family Foundation to Colorado where they spent a week working on a ranch owned by Vietnam Veteran Dave Roever that takes care of wounded veterans and their families.
