During the summer, three Incline High School JROTC cadets attended the Marine Corps Devil Pups Youth Program at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in Southern California.

These three cadets learned ways to push themselves and always perform at their highest. Over 600 teenagers attended the program during July and August.

This experience lasted 10 days, which was filled with teamwork, discipline, and education.

This course is all about physical, academic, and citizenship challenges. Upon arrival, the cadets, checked in, received uniforms, optional haircuts and had their first Marine Corps meal.

Throughout the rest of the experience, the cadets participated in activities such as physical conditioning, First-Aid instruction, leadership classes, organized recreation, swimming, and outdoor camping.

They also attended classes on the importance of self-confidence, teamwork, drug and alcohol abuse and goal setting in life.

After 10 days of challenging activities the cadets earned the title of Devil Pup.

The Incline Highlander Battalion would like to congratulate Alexis Krolick, Jayde Leonard and Phillip Baldwin on a job well done. These cadets represented the Highlander Battalion with pride and distinction.

Special recognition goes to Phillip Baldwin for his first place award in the Physical Fitness Challenge. Great job Highlanders! A special thanks to Melissa Hankla, Guisi Meili and Pat Cecil for their contributions and help giving these cadets this great opportunity.
