2025 New Cadet Candidates and Mentor Families
Do you remember how helpful it was to hear from your Mentor Family?
Well, here is your chance to give back and help the next group of families from the Class of 2025. We especially need your help with all the communications impairments caused by "the virus."
Appointment acceptance notifications for the USMA Class of 2025 continue to arrive! Please consider serving as a part of our Mentor Family Program for New Cadet Candidate (NCC) Parents. All current families are qualified to serve as Mentors! Our Club VP's (Brett and Leslie Millican) will match NCC families with rising Yuk, Cow and Firstie families. Responsibilities are few and simple. Mentor families contact the NCC families by phone (contact info will be given to you in advance) prior to the May Hail and Farewell event to introduce themselves and welcome them to our Club and the upcoming 47-month journey at West Point. The main objective of the Mentor Program is to answer questions and provide insight to parents periodically through the Plebe year as needed. Of course, we also want you to invite them to join the Club and join our Facebook group site.
Please contact Brett and Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest in serving as a Mentor Family for the Class of 2025. You may mentor a family even if you previously served as a Mentor. We welcome your experience!
We are excited to announce we currently have 12 NCC offered and accepted! Way to go Field Force.
