Cadet Ryan Holl, a sophomore at Lincoln-Way Central, is driven to accept positions of leadership and is extremely active in both JROTC and school activities. He exhibits high moral character and shows great courage by standing up for issues he believes in and addressing them in a respectful manner.

According to their JROTC Instructor, MSgt Schliffka, “These two young cadets exemplifies the Air Force core values of Integrity First, Service-Before-Self, and Excellence in everything they do. I appreciate how well they represent the Air Force Junior ROTC program at Lincoln-Way.”
