Amon Carter Riverside JROTC
Welcome To Amon Carter Riverside JROTC Homepage.
In The Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, (JROTC) the leaders teach the cadets how to become better leaders. They also teach them to build character and leadership by providing guidance and putting the cadets in a position that they are not accustomed to. This helps the cadets adapt to new types of things.
The cadets set the example for the school, especially when they wear the uniforms. When the uniform on it means they are a leader. People watch because they have the uniform on and they know those students are a part of JROTC therefore they expect more out of the students. A leader is someone who stands not only for their cause but takes responsibility and motivates other individuals also. There is a difference between being a boss and a leader. A leader is a motivation for others and inspires individuals to aim higher and attain that aim.
However! A boss only supervises over his/her inferiors. Power naturally comes to a leader but power has to be earned by a boss. The best leaders are those who can lead and direct without misuse of their power. They must be able to inspire others in a direction or greater good. They must be strong enough to stand firm in decision making and leading others without a selfish attitude. In order to be a successful leader it is essential to have good character. You must have honesty, confidence, communication, and commitment.
