Character of the Week (HS) – October 31

Kristen Whipple – 12th grade
Nominated by Colonel Bob Owens

I would like to nominate Kristen Whipple for Character of the Week. She is always prepared for her class and duties within the cadet corps. She prepares her uniform to the highest standard. Kristen was informed before Sunday’s parade that her Junior Miss participation would not be considered an excusable absence. She never batted an eye, fully understood her obligation to the cadet corps and planned accordingly. Instead of whining about the need to be at the pageant she proceeded to plan to attend the Junior Miss practice session after the parade and make up any missed work required of that event. In the end, reconsideration was given for all our GMC participants and she was encouraged to go to the Junior Miss practice session with the other GMC participants. In conclusion, Kristen embodies the high standards that we recognize as important among our cadet corps. She sets the example, provides a role model and is always exemplary in the performance of her duties. As Battalion Executive Officer she is always prepared to step in for the Commander. She supervises the cadet primary staff to insure that their duties are fully understood and carried out. In part, she is one of the primary reasons that the cadet corps and staff is so highly regarded. Her overall contributions are to be commended. MAJ Kristen Whipple demonstrates character above all every day.
