Tiede and Cohoon Receive Scholarships From West Point

Cadet 2nd LT Gretchen Tiede ’23 and Cadet 2nd LT Barron Cohoon ’23 both attended the Summer Leadership Camp at West Point this Summer and got a chance to live the life of a West Point Cadet. This program is designed to give prospective students the full experience of what life would be like as a future cadet and student at the school. Participants are required to pay their own way to and from the camp and our two cadets from TMI performed so well while at the camp that they qualified for a $750 check to help reimburse the cost of attending the camp. Cadet Gretchen Tiede qualified as the top performer in the entire state of Texas and received special recognition. Today, Cadet Tiede has received a letter of assurance from West Point and Cadet Cohoon has received a letter of assurance to the Naval Academy and they both intend to accept their appointment and attend the service academies and pursue a career as a military officer.
