EDEN — Cole Overhoff, a junior at Eden Junior-Senior High School in Eden, has been selected to be among 1,000 attendees at West Point’s Summer Leaders Experience in June.
More than 5,000 junior high school students nationwide applied to SLE, which offers the opportunity to experience life at West Point. Participating students live in the cadet barracks, 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. All SLE attendees will participate in virtual-reality war simulation and military and physical fitness training. In addition, each student will select three of the 15 offered workshops.
The United States Military Academy at West Point is a four-year, coeducational, federally funded undergraduate college located 50 miles north of New York City. It was founded in 1802 as America’s first college of engineering.
