Rachel Monroe – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- This week students in 10th – 12th grade have the opportunity to sign up to take the Armed Services Vocation Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test.
The LRHS Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) offers this test. It measures basic English, math, and science skills, and also natural aptitudes such as mechanical and electronic skills.
The scores are used to not only determine which service branch students are qualified to join, but also which jobs within that service you are qualified to do.
Junior Sophia Sahr is debating taking the ASVAB, “I think it would be interesting to take not only because it would let me know if I can go into the military, but also because it can give me a clue to what jobs I would be qualified to do.”
The test does not require any commitment, or even any interest, to join the military.
The ASVAB is scheduled for Feb. 6 in the school auditorium. Students cam sign up in LRHS instructor MSgt. William Cassidy’s room, number 403.
