Team Advances to the 2018 U.S. Air Force JROTC Academic Bowl Championship

The JROTC Academic Team

After advancing through two phases of online competition, the Lowndes High School JROTC Academic Team composed of David Redish, Kiara Taylor, Cayla Rowland, and Tiffany Jones will compete at The 2018 U.S. Air Force JROTC Academic Bowl Championship to be held on the campus of The Catholic University of America, June 22-26, 2018 in Washington, DC.. This event is sponsored by the U.S. Air Force JROTC and is conducted by College Options Foundation.

Lowndes High School JROTC team earned top scores out of the 330 AF JROTC teams that competed from around the world. The team is one of only sixteen AF JROTC Academic Bowl teams in the nation to advance to the National Academic Bowl competition, which includes an all-expense paid trip to the Championship event in DC.

During the two fast-paced preliminary rounds, students were tested on their knowledge of JROTC curriculum, English, Math, and Science. One of the main goals of the JROTC Academic Bowl is to prepare students for state exit/graduation exams as well as college entrance exams, such as the SAT and ACT.

The winner of the U.S. Air Force JROTC Academic Championship will compete against the winners of the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, and Navy JROTC Academic Bowls in the JROTC Joint Service Academic Bowl Championship. 
The JROTC Leadership & Academic Bowl (JLAB) is a nationally recognized academic competition created exclusively for JROTC students. By participating, cadets learn the values of citizenship, academic competition, and college opportunity. The competition creates tremendous opportunities for JROTC cadets by allowing them to demonstrate leadership and academic abilities.

College Options Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the academic development of high school students and assisting them in their preparation for higher education. Using academic competitions, college exam study guides, college admissions tutorials and personalized counseling, College Options Foundation has assisted the nation’s JROTC cadets worldwide for over a decade.

Lowndes Open Winter Guard Places at WGI World Championships

Winter Guard Team at WGI World Championship

Reported by Mr. Bowman:
The Lowndes Open Winter Guard traveled to Dayton, OH last week to compete in the Winter Guard International World Championships.  This was the first year that the group competed in the "Open" class.  When all was said and done, the students had an 11th place finish out of almost 100 groups from all over the United States.  While we are extremely proud of these students accomplishments on the floor, this does not even come close to how these young ladies represent Lowndes High School off of the floor.  They are all a true blessing to our school and community.  The always represent themselves with class.  Congratulations to their amazing coaches as well.  Kelly Ross, Andy Snow, Hannah Banbury and Travis Wingate have done an amazing job preparing these girls and setting very high expectations.  Please join me in congratulating these students if/when you see them in the hallway or in your classroom.

Also, one more thing I want to share.  We talk constantly about this band being a family.  Our bus driver, John Johnson, was faced with a 13.5 hour bus ride home yesterday from Dayton.  Obviously, we had some concerns about the length of that trip.  One of our former band dads calls me a couple of weeks ago and says he has some vacation time at work and if I needed him he would go.  So...Mr. Don O'Neil flew from Jacksonville, FL on Saturday to Dayton, had dinner, checked into the hotel and got up at 5:45am Sunday morning to help drive the girls home.  No child in the group...it was simply to help and support.  Only at Lowndes!!!!!
