Cadets participated in a week-long training designed to test and evaluate their leadership abilities and determine eligibility for key cadet leadership positions for the upcoming year. The evaluations consisted of several graded events: physical fitness tests, barracks, and personnel inspections, drill and ceremony evaluations, and a comprehensive final exam. Cadets also received graded peer and staff evaluations measuring their ability to display the school’s core values and leadership traits. The course culminated on Friday, August 16th, with a graduation ceremony to announce the board-selected cadet leadership positions.
