An exciting new community outreach programs for elementary school kids in the Charleston area and beyond!

 This new program, the Gold Star Kidets, is for elementary aged students to motivate the youth in the area to work hard in the classroom. This program is to model the academic success and the symbolism of the “Gold Star” for the Corps of Cadets recognized for their high performance in the classroom.
