Freshmen from Hotel Company celebrate recognition day and the end of the fourth-class system.

 

Graduating seniors who have excelled among their classmates are recognized each year with a designation from Who's Who Among American College Students.

 

Cadets compete annually to be named "Best Drilled Cadet" and to receive the honor of having their name engraved on the Star of the West monument.

 

Nearly two dozen cadets and several companies were honored for outstanding achievements in academics, military training, leadership, honor, herorism and community service during the May 4 military dress parade.

 

On a day with clear blue skies, cadets march our of the barracks enroute to the afternoon's military dress parade.

 

Families are an important part of a cadet's accomplishments. Tradition has it the families pin on the new rank of cadets who will be commissioned in the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force.
