Cyber Patriot News

Our Legacy Bronco CyberBroncos recently competed in the AFA Cyber Patriot State Round competition. This iteration featured three network security challenges, also known as OS images. Additionally, the team had to respond to difficult networking challenge questions and work to configure a working Cisco network. Lauren Atkens took care of the router setup, while Izabelle Johnson and Nias Moore hardened Windows 10. David Maybury was the guru of Ubuntu and Kelvin McSwain worked to protect Server 16. The team, although new to the platinum tier of Cyber Patriot, performed admirably. Each of our cadets have access to the entire Cisco Networking Academy site and unlimited downloads from the Microsoft Imagine Network. They are encouraged to train daily as if cyber security was their job. The Cyber Patriot competition is designed to equip businesses of the future with experienced professionals to thwart cyber-attacks.

About JROTC at Legacy

Legacy JROTC is a co-curricular elective that meets the SB5 endorsement for Public Service. It is also designed to support MISD’s Vision 20/20 Third Guiding Statement.  JROTC develops confidence, academic rigor, and teamwork by using the Seven Army Values – “Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage” in all our lessons and labs. JROTC is a kid-led organization, and its growth and success are contingent upon cadet involvement in all processes. Our class usually teaches Physical Fitness, Drill, Technology, and Uniform Appearance weekly. The cadets with passing grades are regularly in competition against other schools at scheduled drill meets. Legacy always brings home hardware after a drill meet, and we have been nationally ranked at drill performance two years in a row. Uniforms are issued free of charge for all cadets. Only the competing cadets are issued PT uniforms to wear at drill meets. Each cadet is expected do their best at all things. Each cadet has unique opportunities to earn rank, responsibility and awards. We have the following teams – CyberPatriot computer cybersecurity, Raider rescue, Drill Team (armed and unarmed), Male/Female Color Guard, Academics, LEAD online challenges, and Male/Female Physical Training.
