The USMC, Third Civil Affairs Group showed up to AJKA in their Dress Blues for Morning Meeting last week. As our goal of Morning Meeting is to coach kids up and get them prepared for the day, 3rd CAG’s leader Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Conant asked if he could bring his Marines to Morning Meeting to discuss the importance of always being prepared. He spoke to our cadets regarding our RRCC motto and core values and connected it to the core values of the Marines Corps which is Honor, Courage and Commitment. As he stated that these core values define how every Marine in the Corps thinks, acts and does their job, he reminded the cadets sitting before him that this is exactly what RRCC does for cadets at the Academy.
“In our second year of partnership with these fine men and women, our cadets are starting to realize the purpose around our core values and how important it is to live up to a standard of high expectations,” said Principal, Mike Grenda. “We will continue our partnership with this elite group of Marines with our mission always at the forefront of our minds… A.J. Katzenmaier Academy, Meeting cadets where they are and advancing them forward.”
