Battalion Activity

Introduction Of Leadership Positions
With the leadership application deadline coming up and the Change of Command Ceremony just around the corner, our Battalion Commander wants to make sure that every cadet who applying for leadership is prepared and knowledgeable of that position and fully aware of what their applying for and what better way then to talk to those cadets who have held them. During periods 1st, 4th, 6th, and 7th all primary staff and command teams spoke to the companies about their positions, pros, cons, and lessons learned. 
UTSA College Trip
Recently our one and only Senior Army Instructor, Colonel LaChance, took a selected amount of students from the junior class on a UTSA college trip. There the students learned about the opportunities available to them as well as the scholarships that are out there. The students went on a campus tour and were shown presentations involving finical aid, ROTC programs, and campus living. In the picture below you can see our SAI signing his name, along with others, on a poster, recognizing and thanking the fire fighters for all they have done.

The cadets that applied for Commanders and First Sergeants were promoted to their new ranks after waiting to make sure their schedules work with the position they applied for.
