Post date: Dec 17, 2016 12:38:10 AM
On Saturday, 10 December 2016, adult members from around Ohio Wing gathered for the 2016 Group III Training Leaders of Cadets Basic Course. This activity, which is the introductory level of two follow-on courses, serves to develop the skills in these adult leaders to better manage the cadet program at local squadrons. The format is largely discussion based with a number of exercises to reinforce the topics of squadron meeting and activity planning, cadet staff design, program fundamentals, and cadet advancement. Despite a last minute venue change due to power issues at the primary location, the students reported that they left the day with a much better knowledgebase to draw from when leading cadets. We are grateful to BSHM Architects in downtown Youngstown for lending their conference room on short notice. Graduates included Capt Beatty (GLR-OH-051), 1st Lt Link (GLR-OH-210), 2d Lt Aikman (GLR-OH-210), 2d Lt Luther (GLR-OH-051), and SM Kulper (GLR-OH-051). The course director was Lt Col Hrinko.
