Will Caldwell receives appointment to United States Military Academy
(Cadet Will Caldwell is furthering his education at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York.)
17-year-old Georgia Military College (GMC) Prep School senior, Will Caldwell, is getting the opportunity to attend one of the most prestigious military academies in the United States. Cadet Caldwell received his appointment to attend the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York.
“Receiving this appointment means a lot to me because I’ve wanted to be in the Army since I was five years old,” said Will Caldwell. “West Point became a goal of mine once I got into sophomore year here at the Prep School.”
An appointment to the academy requires a nomination from a United States Senator, Congressman, Vice President, or President. Cadet Caldwell received his nomination from Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10). He was also required to have exceptional grades and test scores, and be physically fit and medically qualified to be accepted.
Caldwell is continuing the family legacy of attending and graduating from West Point. He’s excited to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather (USMA 48’) and father, Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell, IV, (USMA 76’) the 21st President of GMC who had a distinguished career spanning 37 years in the United States Army.
“Growing up in the military environment I knew I wanted to be in the Army and attend West Point because it’s such a prestigious school and seeing how [my grandfather and father] have succeeded in their careers I wanted to do the same,” said Caldwell.
Caldwell has been enrolled in GMC’s Prep School since the 9th grade. He was Captain of the State Champion Raider Team. The team also placed #2 at the National Raider Meet. He has varsity letters in wrestling and track as well. He is President of the Spanish Honor Society, and is an Eagle Scout. He credits his education at GMC’s Prep School in preparing him to attend West Point. “This school boosted my confidence,” said Caldwell. “When I came here I became more involved in sports and the instructors showed me how you’re supposed to act in class and present yourself to others. Everything I’ve done here has helped me to grow as a person.”
Caldwell plans to pursue a degree in international relations. He will report to the United States Military Academy on July 3, 2017.
