Austin Mathis- Senior Project Presentation

  1. 1. 2011- 2012 Creekview JROTC Raiders By: Austin Mathis
  2. 2. "Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty, and industry. Dont take too much advice- keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world." - Noah Porter
  3. 3. Goals:Improve the success of the Raider Team.Help people achieve new physical goals.Learn about leadership and esprit de corps.Improve my own physical capabilities.
  4. 4. The Beginning:Poor control.Poor planning.Lack of teamwork and motivation.
  5. 5. My Facilitator: SFC Michael ZeidlerMy Facilitator is one of my JROTC teachers, SFC Michael Zeidler. He was qualified to help me as he is a retired member of the U.S. Army, and served as an instructor in a Ranger Battalion. He had a lot of useful knowledge for me.
  6. 6. What I Used:The tools and techniques I used for my project are:Myself.The extended rectangular formation.The Creekview High School property.Ropes and climbing gear.Facebook.
  7. 7. Problems I Had:When I started out, I did not understand how to organize and motivate a group of my peers.I had no idea how to record progress or information.I had to learn before teaching.
  8. 8. Competition:We have competed in five meets this year, they are:Riverside Military Academy.Catoosa Range Invitational.Winder High School (State Meet).Hart County at NGCSU.Best Raider 2012.
  9. 9. Was This a Success?I believe that my senior project was a success. We took many victories as a team, and established a strong bond as a family. Through teamwork and determination, a mixed division team from a small high school in Canton, GA, set a new standard for the name Raider. We outmatched female, mixed, and male division teams, and also set records wherever we went.
  10. 10. My Research paper:I did my research paper on the history of AJROTC. This applied to my project because I was leading a JROTC team. Through this, I was able to discover the history of my team and learn things about my favorite high school class.
  11. 11. A Career?This project provided great experience for my career in the U.S. Army. I started on my way to this career when I enlisted on September 22, 2011. I hope to take this as far as I can, and will continue my education while defending my country.
