MMA President, Admiral Richard G. Gurnon, said of the honor “Too often in life we are quick to criticize when someone falls short of the mark and we too often fail to recognize great efforts. The Cadet of the Year award is designed to single out those cadets who have done more, made the extra effort, and have achieved at a high level in the classroom”
