GMC Prep Cadet Earns Top 4 Spot in 6th Brigade JROTC Chief Message Essay Contest
Cadet Madison Sloan is a 10th grader at Georgia Military College (GMC) Prep School. This year she was selected as one of the top four winners of the 6th Brigade JROTC Chief Message Essay Contest. Out of 956 essays submitted, Sloan’s ranked high among the students in the 6th Brigade that submitted essays from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.
There are 478 high schools in the 6th Brigade and leaders at the schools choose two essays from their students to submit to the overall Chief Message Essay Contest. This annual competition is designed to give Cadets an opportunity to integrate lessons learned from the JROTC curriculum and communicate their knowledge in writing. The sophomore class learned how to develop a plan for personal growth. Each Cadet completed an 84 question Personal Skills Map. Then they received a profile map of 11 personal and life skills, as well as three potential problematic indicators, all related to emotional intelligence, the topic for this year’s essay contest.
In their essays, Cadets had to address what emotional intelligence is, they had to identify one of their emotional skills and explain what it means, and they had to explain how awareness of their emotional skills makes them a better citizen. Sergeant Major Shedina McCabe, teacher at GMC Prep, says each of her students put in a lot of work on their essays, and that Sloan’s stuck out.
“I was very impressed with Madison’s essay presentation in class,” McCabe said. “I’m extremely proud of her for being selected by 6th Brigade as one of the top four winners to represent at Cadet Command, which is a first at GMC.”
Sloan is the first Cadet at Georgia Military College Prep School to rank this high in the essay contest. GMC Prep Senior Army Instructor, Lieutenant Colonel (retired) David Lewis, says Sloan demonstrated a clear understanding for the topics in which the students have learned about throughout the school year.
“I am very proud of Madison and the hard work and dedication she put into this essay project,” Lewis said. “What an amazing accomplishment by an outstanding young lady!”
Congratulations to Cadet Madison Sloan on this exciting accomplishment!
