Caroline D. Rykard, a junior at Liberty County High School in Midway, has been selected to be among 1,000 attendees at West Point’s Summer Leaders Experience (SLE) in June.

More than 5,000 juniors nationwide applied to SLE, which offers outstanding high school juniors the opportunity to experience life at West Point. SLE attendees live in the cadet barracks (dormitories), eat in the Cadet Mess and participate in academic, leadership, athletic and military workshops.

The one- week seminars are designed to help juniors with their college-selection process while giving them an idea of the importance of leadership and sound decision-making in their education, careers and lives in general.

All SLE attendees participate in virtual-reality war simulation and military and physical fitness training. In addition, each student selects three of the 15 offered workshops.

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point is a four-year, co-educational, federally funded undergraduate college located 50 miles north of New York City. For more information about West Point, go to
