Hollywood Hills High School
Why did I enroll in Jrotc?
If you were in middle school and you see some crazy guy in uniform screaming would you choose that class or not? I chose that class because I didn’t want to be as every other high school student and just show up for 4years and then graduate. But the real reason that I enrolled in JROTC was because I want to be different than every high school student and you learn how to become a leader. To begin with, the first reason that I enrolled in JROTC was because I want to be different then every high school student. JROTC has truly been a blessing in my life. JROTC has helped me stick out from the crowd because most high school student do not like being told what to do. Also they do not like wearing the uniform but I take pride in it because when I grow older I will join the army because of the great amount of influences that I had in my life from my dad to LTC Harrell. When people see my down the hallways they ask me do you like that class? And I always reply the same thing “OF COURSE!!!!” To continue, another reason that I enrolled in JROTC was because they teach you how to become a leader. Become a leader is truly a never ending journey. You will have to adjust to every situation that is thrown at you. A very successful college basketball coach that took JROTC was Coach Mike Krzyzewski. Also becoming a leader will help you in life forever till you die. If you do not know how to lead and they put you in a managerial position then how will you respond to that situation? So all in all, the reason that I enrolled JROTC is because JROTC was because I want to be different than every high school student and you learn how to become a leader. But if all high school students enrolled in JROTC the graduation percentage would dramatically increase because of the mental and physical inspiration it gives us.
