    Would like any information on the responsibilities of a Prep School Element Leader.

    Are there additional Leadership positions during the one year at the Prep School. And what are they?

    And I am also curious if there are Cadet Ranks given at the Prep School and what they are.

    As an element leader at the prep school you really don't do much, the only purpose is to make sure your element is accounted for every time you form up for meals and to pass down any information from the squadron leadership.

    Prep School titles (i dont remember the ranks lol)

    Group Commander C/C
    Group Staff
    There are 3 squadrons each with their respective Squadron Commander, Squadron Director of Operations, First Sergeant and Sup.

    And within eachsquadron there are jobs like Academic officer, Academic NCO, MWR Officer with his NCO, Athetlic Officer, Athletic NCO, etc.

    Hope that helps.

    Element Leader

    Does everyone in the squadron have a responsibilty?

    Also..apparently there was a parade with a couple of parents in attendance. How did they even find out about the parade?

    We have several friends in the area that would've loved to have attended the parade. Are there other events that would be nice to attend?

    Thanks.

    No, not everyone at the prep school has a responsibility there are always a few in every squad that doesn't have a job for a specific quarter.

    Hmm, not sure about how they may have found out about the parade. Could be parent clubs in that area not too sure about that one.

    The next awesome event coming up is parent's weekend but I'm sure you already know about that one. Besides that there really aren't too many parades.

    The highest possible rank (the group commander) holds Cadet Candidate Lieutenant Colonel rank.

    As to jobs, it all depends on the C/C as to what he/she wants and is capable of. If they want to do something important they can as long as their grades support the time away from academics. There are a lot of options from being a computer officer (IT person) to assisting with schoolwork, to commanding the group.
