The Student Spotlight

Jonathon Kendrick

Jonathon Kendrick, a senior this year, joined the Army National Guard in his junior year.  He says he joined the Guard because he liked the idea of a challenge. His grandpa was also in the military, which helped to spur his interest in it. This summer, he trained for two and a half months at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. When asked what the toughest part of training was, Jonathon said it would have to be being put in the gas chambers without a mask or any equipment. Although it takes a lot of hard work and dedication, he really enjoys being a part of it all. After high school, he plans on attending special training in Fort Lee, Virginia.
