Mercer County Cadets shine during five day leadership training

Posted:

Cadets from Mercer County learned a lesson in team building, while participating in swimming and climbing activities. 

Sergeant Paul Dorsey led 266 cadets from JROTC programs in a cadet leadership challenge, including 38 cadets from all four Mercer County high schools.

The students spent five days in Camp Dawson,West Virginia, spending time going through various team building activities. 

 Sergeant Dorsey says the challenge prepares the cadets for the real world. 

"We've taken the JROTC curriculum and without changing it at all, trained people how to be employees," said Sergeant Dorsey. "JROTC is the number one character education program in America. If you talk to any employer, that's what their going to tell you."
