During the week of March 30, 15 cadets from the Incline High School Highlander Battalion participated in the sixth annual JROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge at the Stead Aviation Center and the Nevada Air Guard at the Reno Airbase.

JCLC was a 2-day camp that built leadership skills through various activities. Activities included orienteering, ropes bridging, rappelling, leadership reaction, team building and obstacle courses. During their stay, cadets received tours and ate authentic military meals.

Cadets bonded with the JROTC units of McQueen and Reno high schools that, along with the Highlander Battalion, cohesively made one unit.

C/MAJ Alyssa Flynn is a member of the 2014-15 Highlander Battalion.
