J. Barron Cohoon ’23 was selected to attend the Summer Leader Experience (SLE) at the United States Military Academy at West Point and was accepted into the Air Force Academy Summer Seminar.
The West Point SLE provides rising high school seniors with a week-long immersion into the academic, military, and social life of a cadet. As an attendee of SLE, Barron will get a taste of Cadet Life through the entire program.
Similarly, the Air Force Academy Summer Seminar provides an opportunity to learn more about life as a cadet at the Academy. Students are selected to participate in Summer Seminar based on a “whole person concept” that includes demonstrated leadership experience or potential in extracurricular and community activities, athletics, and academics. Historically, more than 3,200 people apply and roughly 640 are selected.
