Congratulations to VASJ senior Ryan Gallagher who was admitted into the West Point Class of 2016 at the United States Military Academy. “West Point requires cadets with determination, integrity, self-discipline, strength of character, endurance and a willingness to work hard,” says Lieutenant General David Huntoon, Jr.
Ryan was motivated to apply to West Point for several reasons. “I knew what a great school it was and I saw a lot of great people that came from there,” he says. “A couple of my role models like Coach Babe Kwasniak (’94) and Mr. Gary Minadeo (’74) are people I aspire to be like and also went to West Point so I decided to apply,” Ryan says.
Ryan is thinking about studying engineering and hopes to walk-on to the football team. He will leave for Cadet Basic Training on July 2, 2012.
