Three Waukesha cadets accepted into summer Service Academy opportunities!
Recently, three Waukesha Composite Squadron cadets earned slots to attend summer seminars sponsored by the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy. Many youth from around the nation seek acceptance into one of these summer experiences.
Cadet Senior Master Sergeant Cassandra Jehly will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Summer Seminar. The seminar, specially designed for high school juniors heading into their senior year, allows participants to experience cadet life at the Academy. During her stay, Jehly will have the chance to live in the cadet dormitories, explore academic majors through workshops led by Academy faculty, and participate in physical fitness activities including a Candidate Fitness Assessment.
Cadet First Lieutenant Olga Boukhvalova will spend time at the U.S. Naval Academy’s Summer STEM Program.
The program provides high school freshman and sophomores the opportunity to spend time in the Academy’s world-class lab facilities and engage in real-life applications of math and science principles. In order to be accepted, students must show strong academic performance in science, technology, engineering, and math areas.
Cadet First Lieutenant Jacob Bane will also be visiting the U.S. Naval Academy as part of that school’s Summer Seminar. Similar to the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Summer Seminar, participants experience a fast-paced, six-day orientation to life at the U.S. Naval Academy. Summer Seminar teaches participants about life at the Naval Academy, where academics, athletics, and professional training play equally important roles in developing naval leaders. The seminar is only open to high school juniors who demonstrate strong academic performance and community involvement.
