Getting Back in the Groove

(Academics, Overcoming Challenges, Class of 2015) Permanent link   All Posts
Min Photo Coming back to the cold is never an easy thing, but the light at the end of the tunnel grows ever clearer as I move into the second semester of my 3/c year. One of the many things we have to look forward to is our summer orientation. The cadre experience; where we are tasked with the role of leading. In 2010, I took the oath as I entered into the Coast Guard Scholars Program, which I feel developed and further instilled morals and values into me. When I first got accepted into the program I had never heard of it and was disappointed that I did not get an appointment straight into the Academy, but over the past two and a half years, I have realized how vital the program was to my success.


Now, that the time approaches for choosing our summer positions, I am requesting to be a member of the cadre assigned to train the scholars. The CGAS program helped me grow up more than I would have anywhere else and I am hopeful I will have the opportunity to fill the large shoes of my cadre this coming summer.
