Cadet Lieutenant Austin West was selected as a member of the 2017 Appalachian Regional All-Star Leadership Team, an equivalent to an all-conference selection by an athlete.
 
A four-year member of the Volunteer Navy JROTC, Cadet West serves as the Battalion Executive Officer of the Unit.  Austin has been a member of the Rifle Team, Academic Team, and Athletic Team.  He is a graduate of Leadership Academy and CO/XO School and served as Cadre for Leadership Academy. Cadet West is pursuing military service upon graduation.
 
The All-Star Leadership Team was recognized at the Johnson City Cardinals’ JROTC Night on August 30, 2017.  Mr. Bobby Wines presented Austin with his certificate in class on September 6, 2017.
 
The mission of Navy JROTC is to instill the values of citizenship, service to the United States, personal responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment.  Trips to military bases and universities around the region help accomplish this mission by showing Cadets opportunities that await upon completion of High School.  Cadets receive academic credit for their enrollment in JROTC while earning community service hours, participating in extracurricular activities, and developing leadership attributes. Cadets have no military obligation for participating in JROTC, but they can receive promotion in the armed forces should they choose to enlist.
