The Fort Pierce Westwood High School JROTC recently competed in the Academic JLAB competition.

JLAB (Junior Leadership and Academic Bowl) is a program within JROTC sponsored by the College Options Foundation. Cadets have the opportunity to improve their ACT/SAT scores, increase interest in college admission, gain leadership skills, and advance hands-on learning. During the JLab competition, the team completed an academic test composed of three sections: verbal, math, and science. The team consisted of Cadets Andrews, Loschin, Soto, Flores, and the alternative Cadet Rigsby. The team worked together on the clock. In the end, the team received a score of 75% in the first level of the JLab academic competition.
