Welcome Letter From

Our Battalion Commander

My name is Alexander Lagos, and I am the Battalion Commander at Klein Cain High School. It is a great honor to have this position given to me, and I look forward to upholding the legacy of hard work and dedication left by cadets past. I have spent the whole of my high school years in JROTC, and still I find myself learning new things. I’ve been taught skills and leadership techniques that will help me for the rest of my life. My wish is for my fellow cadets to have the same experience and learn all that is offered through the program.

To me, willpower is the most important human quality. It is what allows us to make new discoveries, become better people- to build the very future itself. I am honored to lead a battalion bound together through willpower. Despite the fact that, as a new battalion, we were hit with the setback of COVID-19, we emerged stronger than ever, ready to face whatever came our way. It prides me to say that the willpower of our cadets is second to none. I hope to inspire them to use that will to be better citizens- to grow to be people who are loyal, dutiful, respectful, selfless, honorable, honest, and courageous. I want them to be people who inspire, and above all else, strive to do good. The Battalion Commander before me worked hard so that we could be educated and strong, and uphold the values for which we stood. Now it’s my turn to do the same, and prepare the Hurricane Battalion for the next cadet to hold the torch of leadership.

There was never a war won without effort. If we continue to work hard- to overcome the obstacles in our path, just as we did with the pandemic- we will find ourselves one step closer on the path to building a better future. And no matter what the future should bring, we will stand as we always have, continuing to motivate young people to be better citizens.
