Sarah Folsom, a cadet in the Granbury Marine Corps JROTC program, has been selected to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point Summer Leader Experience to be held during three sessions in June 2021.
The Summer Leader Experience is a fast-paced, six-day virtual experience for high achievers who have completed their junior year in high school. The program teaches students about life at West Point, where academics, athletics, and professional training play equally important roles in developing national leaders.
The competitive entry program only admits the top students from across the country and uses strong selection criteria, including superior high school performance to include GPA, class standing, and strong PSAT, SAT, or ACT results; demonstrated achievement in athletics and extracurricular activities, especially demonstrating leadership potential in these areas; physical fitness and good health; and a positive attitude, self-discipline, and good moral character.
