Fort Pierce Westwood High School JROTC cadets recently visited Palm Beach Atlantic University for annual Leadership Day. The Cadets were amazed by the campus life, the buildings where classes are held, and the attractive and convenient location of the school. They were afforded the opportunity to talk to some of the professors and the Professor of Military Science (ROTC) and ask questions relevant to their future in college, work place or military. The group was also very impressed with the school’s cafeteria, which reportedly rivals top shelf restaurants.
