TJ Williams 300x300, Commonwealth ChalleNGe Youth Academy

Cadet Williams, Class 26

Holiday Inn

I was a former cadet here in Class 26 Challenge taught me a lot of leadership, discipline etc. I was in the second platoon. At first I was nervous because I didn’t know anybody, but as the months passed, we all became brothers in arms. We stayed together, we marched together, we prayed together and we graduated together. We also were the first class that had a drum corps and I was the one playing the bass drum and I’m glad that, to this day, they continue to still do the drum corps. Commonwealth Challenge in VA Beach is the best place to help the young people. It will teach you leadership and discipline and so much more. It helped me to be a better person.
