For Massed and his fellow cadets, the leadership course was a defining moment that helped them face their fears, develop strong friendships and put them on the path to becoming strong, effective leaders.
"This course gives me a chance to meet some of my peers from around the United States, and making friends that will last a life time. This course has given me interpersonal skills which will be valuable down the road," said Massed.
With the foundation set to help these cadets launch their time in the Army, whether it is part time in the National Guard or Reserve, or as an active duty officer, each cadet leaves here with a particular goal in mind.
"After graduating from college, I plan to receive my commission in the Army and eventually seeking a career in a federal agency," said Massed.
