Cadet LTC Ayden M. Ward is in the JROTC program at Bridgeport High School. He enjoys the ability to experience leadership responsibility at varying degrees of importance and the comradery among the Corps of Cadets at his school. The JROTC program is helping him to develop leadership and interpersonal skills and prepare for military service as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. He feels that this Career Technical Education program is preparing him for his future by providing the opportunity to experience the hands-on application of leadership principles in group settings and will ultimately prepare him for entry into a higher-level military course of instruction.
