One of the Best Times of the Year
U.S. Representative Ken Buck called this week to congratulate our school on a West Point Congressional nomination. Representative Buck asked to deliver the message to our stellar student, Matthew Tewolde. We arranged with his teacher to make the announcement in class. Representative Buck thanked Matthew for stepping up to the challenges of West Point, especially during a time of global uncertainty.

Committing to defend the US Constitution with a five-year service commitment requires a great sense of duty. The West Point motto of Duty, Honor, Country sums up the values that have defined this great American institution since its founding in 1802 by Thomas Jefferson. It is personal for Representative Buck as a 2011 West Point grad parent. He understands what it takes to raise a son or daughter to this caliber. Matthew’s classmates broke out in spontaneous applause. Teachers hugged Matthew. His twin sister, also in the class, held her own as she has been accepted to Johns Hopkins University.  Click here to read more
