They know the drill: NJROTC programs give high-schoolers important life lessons

The Junior Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps programs at Shawnee Mission North High School and Shawnee Mission West High School offer students some military training with plenty of life lessons as well. “We’re giving them a bigger view of themselves in this world,” says Dennis Grayless, who leads the program at Shawnee Mission North. “It’s not all about them: It’s about teamwork. That’s life.”
