FORT WAYNE, Ind. — After advancing through two phases of online competition, Concordia Lutheran High School’s JROTC Leadership Team will compete in person at the championship event in Washington, D.C.
Students competing will be junior JD Schuller (team leader), junior Lindsay Bennett, sophomore Lucas Rosbrugh and freshman Isaiah Rusher.
The 2018 U.S. Army JROTC Leadership Bowl Championship will be held on the campus of The Catholic University of America on June 22-26.
This event is sponsored by the U.S. Army Cadet Command, JROTC Headquarters and is conducted by College Options Foundation.
Concordia’s JROTC team earned top scores out of the 1,329 U.S. Army JROTC teams that competed from around the world. The team is one of only 40 Army JROTC Leadership Bowl teams in the nation to advance to the National Leadership Bowl competition, which includes an all-expense paid trip to the championship event in DC. During the two fast-paced preliminary rounds, cadets were tested on their knowledge of current events, leadership values, and leadership skills.
The JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl (JLAB) is a nationally recognized competition created exclusively for JROTC students. By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, academic competition and college opportunity. The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities.
