The Lee’s Summit North High School AFJROTC hosted it's annual drill competition on February 22 where sixteen teams from as far as Nebraska and Oklahoma competed in Armed Regulation, Unarmed Regulation, Armed Exhibition, Unarmed Exhibition, Color Guard, and Individual Drill Downs (IDD’s). 

Although Lee’s Summit North cadets hosted the competition, they did not compete to enable other teams the chance to win more trophies and so Lee’s Summit North’s drill team could have the chance to watch other teams and see how they can improve themselves for next season. The drill competition went like clockwork, everyone knew where they had to be and at what time. The members of the Lee's Summit North drill team were assigned to the competing teams for the day, and were very hospitable. 

The Lee's Summit North High School drill meet was a successful event in North's AFJROTC program. It helped to raise money and build relationships between North's cadets and all the cadets that competed in the meet.

Lee’s Summit North High School has had an AFJROTC for more than 10 years. They have gotten distinguished unit 9 times and with merit twice. LSN’s AFJROTC is under the leadership of Lt Col Deese and SMSgt Johnson. Lt Col Deese is also in charge of Cyber Patriot team, which is headed to Washington D.C. for the next level in their competition. The JROTC program encourages development of leadership skills and each cadet in the Corp has an equal opportunity to become a leader in their JROTC years at LSN.
