Welcome to the Mentor Programs. Here you will find descriptions of the various mentorship programs our offices offers.
The first is a set of two programs orchestrated by Mr. Jim Whetstone to pair selected cadets with a mentor in order to facilitate their leadership development and help them prepare for their post-graduation career. These are the Top 9/Athlete Leader and the Company-level programs. The Office of the Commandant is very appreciative of Mr. Whetstone for his valuable contributions to cadet leader development. A little of Mr. Whetstone’s biography and the evolution of the current program is provided for interested readers
Second is the 1C-4C Mentor Program. It allows fourthclassmen the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and guidance from designated firstclassmen, and for those firstclassmen to refine their own leadership skills. The program is formally codified here and in the Blue Book.
