Southwest Legacy High School offers its students several college and career pathways. Andrew, a senior, is on the Culinary Arts Pathway and works side by side with industry chefs in a professional setting. He is on track to graduate with a ServSafe Food Handler’s Certification. During the 2016-17 school year, our students earned over 350 workforce certifications. SWLHS offers students opportunities for internships, externships, and real work life experiences.
The challenging event was timed and the cadets competed to have the fastest time. Some of the cadets completed the course multiple times in an attempt to improve their scores. Cadets Sara Gibb and Michael James tied the winning time at 1 minute and 12 seconds. “The course really helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses all while having a great time,” said Cadet Dylan Romero. This was such a successful event that the Madison JROTC cadets have already requested the Army Fitness Team come back to do it again.
