On March 16, Air Force JROTC cadets participated in the Foley Middle School’s 2018 S.T.E.M. Career Expo, designed to encourage students to explore new career opportunities.
Approximately 800 middle school students from Foley and Robertsdale participated in the event with 32 vendors.
Throughout the day, cadets engaged students eager to learn more about the JROTC program and many who showed a lot of interest in enrolling in the program next year. Many students had already enrolled and were eager to attend Freshmen Academy over the summer.
Freshmen Academy, scheduled for August, provides first-year cadets advanced training before classes begin as well as an early promotion. Cadets also shared academic, co-curricular, and community service opportunities available to enhance the JROTC experience.
