Sophomore Jordan Gomez began her journey in JROTC in middle school while participating in JLC. Gomez said the community is her favorite part of JROTC and plans to continue this path after graduation. 

“I did JLC, which is the middle school term for JROTC,” Gomez said. “The community really helped me get through.”

Alongside participating in the color guard and drill team, Gomez has always loved to draw. Gomez describes herself as a left-sided mind and cultivates her inspiration from all around her. 

“I use my left-side,” Gomez said. “I just naturally see things and I’m like, ‘oh, I want to draw that. That looks nice.’”
