RCDS junior Jackson Stein was awarded a scholarship to attend the California Wing Cadet Conference, a national Civil Air Patrol (CAP) cadet gathering held annually. Jackson, who is currently a CAP Cadet Staff Sergeant, served as a representative of the New York Cadet Wing in the NY-048 delegation. The four-day virtual conference, dedicated primarily to young members of the Civil Air Patrol community, consisted of over 100 different classes.
Civil Air Patrol is America’s premier public service organization for carrying out emergency services and disaster relief nationwide. As the volunteer, nonprofit auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, CAP’s three missions are to develop its cadets, educate Americans on the importance of aviation and space, and perform life-saving, humanitarian missions. CAP’s transformative cadet program creates young aerospace leaders through a curriculum that focuses on leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character.
Congratulations, Jackson, and thank you for your service and leadership!
