Clements NJROTC/NNDCC Unit selected Cadet Kiana Farokhpour as the January Cadet of the Month. Cadet Farokhpour is a 9th grade student, which classifies her as a Naval Science I Student.
Cadet Farokhpour possesses characteristics exceptional to her peer group. In addition her unmatched drive and determination sets her apart. She stated, “Coming to Clements is probably one of the greatest decisions I’ve made; but it comes second to joining NJROTC. I’ve met and made outstanding friends, I’ve learned many characteristics of becoming a good leader, and it changed me for all the better.”
She has learned all the required knowledge (chain of command, orders to the sentry, etc.), and when in uniform she emulates a recruiting poster picture. Additionally, Cadet Farokhpour is the only female on the Armed Drill Team. She looks at spinning the 9.5 lb weapons as just another challenge. Kiana closed her statement with, “I now live by the Navy Core Values, Honor, Courage and Commitment, and now there is nothing I can’t handle.”
She is the daughter of Gity Haghkhah and Von Farokhpour. Cadet Farokhpour will receive the Cadet of the Month Ribbon, Cadet of the Month Certificate, and a free uniform day pass.
