Faith Miller – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Wednesday, the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test was held at LRHS.

Forty-two Mustangs signed up to take the test. A preparatory course was held on Jan. 18.

ASVAB test scores help determine which individuals qualify for enlistment. It also measures their skillset for the U.S. Military.

The exam was open for all LRHS sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

LRHS Charlie Company sophomore Jeanne Tovar took the exam this week.

Tovar said, “The ASVAB was moderately difficult, considering I’m a sophomore. I took it without preparing in order to gauge my current knowledge and to target any of my weak areas for improvement later on. I think I did pretty well.”

The majority of test takers for the ASVAB were Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) cadets, however some were not in the program.

Charlie Company Commander junior John Sugalski said, “The ASVAB was not very difficult for me. Hopefully I don’t have to take it again.”
