Our 2017 Cadet Awards and Honors

Cadet Awards and Honors

It’s that time of year; a time for reflection and excitement as our cadets prepare to leave Massanutten Military Academy and embark on their next adventure. Throughout their time at MMA, cadets have established a team-oriented mindset through athletics, learned the value of giving to others through community involvement, and prepared themselves for college through hard work and dedication to academics and leadership. While it’s time to take the next step, we must first take a moment to reflect on the accomplishments of the 2016 – 2017 Corps of cadets.
