More from the President
On Tuesday, 22 June, Governor, Cecil Underwood, hosted a reception for six of West Virginia's new West Point cadets. The six cadets, who will report to West Point as new members of the Class of 2002 on Monday the 29th, are shown with the governor in the picture just below.
This media provided excellent coverage
for this event and this should help our society in its efforts
to increase West Virginia's share of available scholarships.
Appointments to the academies are reported to be worth $250,000
each. Three TV stations were at the reception along the the Assocaiated
Press, Metro-Media Network and the Charleston Daily Mail. Each
cadet was interviewed by a least one of the stations and content
was forwarded to the appropriate local TV station for each cadet.
