Wednesday, May 2, Through its national schol- arship program, the CAP pro- vides scholarships to cadets to further their studies in areas such as engineering, science, aircraft mechanics and aero- space medicine. The U.S. Air Force recog- nizes the high standards the cadets must meet and cadets that choose to enlist in the Air Force enter as airmen first class instead of airmen basic. Completing the CAP Cadet Program helps when applying for the Air Force Academy as well. Nearly 10 percent of the academy class is composed of former cadets, according to Lantz. When many teenagers com- plain there is nothing to do, these cadets are looking for- ward to exciting adventures. The CAP Cadet Program promotes a drug free pro- gram, which offers opportuni- ties to build leadership skills, become physically fit, build self.esteem and respect and participate in aerospace edu- cation. The 16 young men and women who are working their way through the CAP Cadet rogram are: Amanda Boyd, Victor Chan, Kurtis Clark, Michael Kelly, Chris Mah, Robert Marshall, Anthony Martinez, Jeremiah Mc- Cleery, Robert Mendoza, Gar- ret Powell, Joshua Rodgers, Scan Saulnier, Elan Saulnier, John Smylie, Kamiko Thatch. er, Anthony Valadez, Steven Wilburn and Chris Olsen.
