A Message From the Director of ASB
The Associated Student Body (ASB) encourages character development, values, and a sense of respect and responsibility in Cadets.
Senior Cadets are elected and appointed to ASB Officer positions, and they meet regularly with the ASB Director to discuss issues pertaining to the needs of Cadets, the Academy, and the greater community.
In addition to the ASB Officers, each class nominates class representatives. Officers and class representatives serve as role models for the Corps of Cadets. They are expected to be in good standing in terms of academics, citizenship, and leadership.
ASB Clubs allow Cadets to get involved in activities outside of Academics. Many of the clubs complete community service projects, some are for entertainment, and others are faith-based. We have a club to match the interests of each Cadet on campus, and Cadets are required to be members of at least one club per school year.
The ASB puts on three dances per year. The first dance of the year occurs in November during Autumn Ball weekend. The Autumn Ball begins with the Grand March of our Cadet leaders into Duffield Sports Center. The two other dances are held during Warrior Family Weekend in March and during Alumni Weekend in May.
Cadets have fun in this club learning the techniques and styles used to play the Highland Bagpipes. Cadets will learn how to play, understand the mechanics and maintenance of the instrument, and experience audio and visual appreciation of the music.
Book and Reading
Book and Reading Club provides an opportunity for students to read books of their choice for pleasure. Students can bring their own books or Mrs. Frazier has an extensive class library from which to choose. Some club time will be spent discussing favorite books, but most of the time will be spent silently reading.
