Retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant Angela Evans has been hired to take the helm beginning July 1. Currently, she is an instructor at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center south of Hutchinson.
The Air Force Junior ROTC fell into some difficult times over the past couple of years. The Senior Aerospace Instructor had to resign a couple of years ago due to serious health issues. That put the LHS unit on probation because the Air Force requires two instructors. Then in January 2023, the remaining Aerospace Instructor resigned, leaving the unit without a single instructor. However, the unit will remain in place for 2023-24 because a new instructor has been hired to head the unit while the school continues its search for a second instructor.
She has already met the cadets in the program and has already scheduled events with them, and she is assisting in the search for a second instructor. She also has AFJROTC experience as an instructor of the program in Colorado Springs
