He was a team leader for the 2011 Selfridge Airshow and served as Bravo Flight Commander from 2011-2012. In 2010 Antos attended the Great Lakes Region Summer Encampment at the Combat Readiness Training Center in Alpena, Mi., and plans to attend the Cadet Leadership School there this summer.
Antos earned the Wright Brothers Award in May 2011 and the Aerospace Education Excellence Award in Sept. 2011. He was presented with the Air Force Sergeant's Association Outstanding Cadet in December 2011.
Antos has shown his leadership skills over the past months as he has been actively involved in all aspects of the squadron. He is currently a junior in high school and will be using his leadership skills to lead the squadron's 44 cadets toward his goals for squadron excellence in the coming year.
"I really am excited to face the challenge of leading the cadets in our squadron," said Antos. "The most important thing is to be their best example, so that's what I desire to be over this next year."

Cadets learn leadership skills as well as aerospace education and have many opportunities to volunteer for local community events, as well as learn search and rescue techniques.
