Graduate Turner - Class 35
I am so GRATEFUL for the Challenge Academy and ALL the staff who have helped CHANGE so many young men and women lives, getting them all to see life in a good way, showing/teaching them self control, respect and making better choices in life… My son just graduated in Class 32! SO PROUD OF ALL of the cadets.
I consider myself a fairly smart person, not because of my education, but because of what I’ve learned of my experience as a cadet, and from the opportunities Challenge opened up for me, like AmeriCorps for example.
