Poly Cadets in Action

CPR & AED Certification:
On 13 June 2018, 74 Poly cadets were certified in CPR and AED by their JROTC instructors. During this skills-based course, cadets covered a variety of topics including: Adult, Child and Infant CPR and Choking Care; AED Use and Safety Precautions; Scene Assessment; CPR Barriers; Personal Protective Equipment; Responding to an Emergency; Recovery Position; Bloodborne Pathogens; and Legal Issues. After completing a written assessment, cadets had to correctly demonstrate each skill for certification. With these skills, cadets are now prepared to respond in a first aid emergency.

​​​​​​​JLAB National Championship:
From 22-26 June 2018, four Poly cadets traveled to Washington, D.C. to compete in the 2018 JROTC Leadership and Academic Bowl (JLAB) championship. Poly's team was one of only 16 Air Force finalists in the competition, representing the top 5% of 327 participating Air Force JROTC units from across the nation. On day one of JLAB, Poly's team went head to head against nine other teams in a round robin tournament facing questions in the areas of literature, mythology and language, algebra,geometry, probability and statistics, biology, chemistry, physics and other sciences, history, geography and social sciences as well as U.S. and foreign current events. While the team did not finish high enough to advance to the quarterfinals, cadets gained valuable experience that can be shared with future Poly teams. They also enjoyed the opportunity to spend time in our nation's Capitol, visiting monuments and memorials, Arlington National Cemetery, and the Air and Space Museum. Congratulations Team Poly!
