We Recognize Excellence
We believe the way a young man maintains himself is an important life skill and is an especially important aspect of life at a military academy. Therefore, we are constantly looking for ways to instill and recognize excellence in our students. A few years ago we started a program that identifies the most outstanding cadet in each company each week. Additionally, each semester, we identify the best cadets in each company and convene a cadet board to determine the Cadet of the Semester. The cadet board consists of the cadet battalion commander and his five company commanders. This board interviews each cadet, asks each cadet questions concerning the academy and considers each cadet’s personal appearance, behavior, and motivation.
