MSM Senior Erick Lassiter spent part of his summer at "Summer Leaders Experience," also known as "West Point Summer Leaders Experience." Erick spent a week at the most prestigious Military Academy in the world to learn about the academy and its educational and leadership development programs.
Erick plans to become an active duty officer through either West Point or ROTC. After graduation, he also plans to attend medical school and enter into the medical corps.
"While my family and I were getting our security passes and we mentioned that we were here for SLE, a lady behind us told us that it was a very eye-opening program for her daughter, who was now an ROTC cadet. I have to agree with her because it was an eye-opening experience for myself seeing what West Point was like, with 5:00 A.M. PT and talking with current cadets, and what the Army had to offer, especially through "field-day" where we talked with active duty soldiers about their roles and what their Army branches do. I had a great experience at West Point!" said Erik Lassiter, MSM senior.
