Congratulations to Ric Masi on being accepted for
admission to the prestigious United States Military Academy.
The United States Military Academy at West Point is one of the
most elite institutions in the country. Students, or cadets as
they are called at the West Point, receive a full scholarship to the
school in exchange for a five-year commitment to the Army after
Admissions to West Point is an exceptional honor reserved for
the nation's most promising students. Even though the application
process started a year ago, Ric has always displayed the character
necessary to be a cadet. His high school years have been filled
with service to his school, church and community. Most recently,
he was awarded with the Senator Kemp Hannon Leadership award, The
American Legion Boys State Leadership Program and the West Point Summer
Ric always wanted to be a solider and became inspired to attend
the USMA after learning about the core values the Academy follows. "To
educate, train and inspire the Corps of Cadets so that each graduate is
a commissioned leader of character committed to the values of Duty,
Honor, Country and be prepared for a career of professional excellence
and service to the Nation as an officer in the United States Army."
Ric's goal is to live this mission.
Ric is honored to live in the Island Trees community and attend
Island Trees High School and looks forward to the opportunity to attend
West Point and serve his country.
Ric will be embarking on a 47 month West Point experience this
summer which will culminate with him serving our nation as a
commissioned leader of character in the Army. We are all very proud of
Ric and wish him the best of luck in the future.
