2020 Exemplar Dinner
The 2020 Class Exemplar Dinner was held earlier this week, honoring their Exemplar 1st Lt Robert "Bob" Hoover.
Since the Class of 2000, each class has chosen someone who "exemplifies" the type of person the class wishes to emulate.
"The Cadet Exemplar Program is an avenue for each Academy class to honor and identify with deceased military officers, military-associated civilians, aerospace and aviation pioneers and leaders who have made extraordinary contributions to the development of American air and space power. The program is designed to link our nation's rich heritage with the class's boundless future. An Exemplar must have exhibited integrity and character in both their professional careers and their personal lives. As such, the heroes who are chosen epitomize the personal characteristics that each class of cadets seeks to emulate."
The goal of the Cadet Exemplar Program is to build officers with a strong foundation in our nation's and our military's heritage in order to advance into the future as a united aerospace force.
The Class of 2020 shared this special event with 9 of their Legacy Class members from the Class of 1970. Pictured below with their Cadet escorts and USAFA Staff.
The Class of 2020 heard from one of their Legacy Class members; General (Ret) Greg Martin and the Guest Speaker for the evening was Mrs. Kimberley Furst. She is an award winning producer, director, and documentary film editor who currently works with Kilo Foxtrot Films. Her connection with Mr. Hoover began when she filmed "Flying the Feathered Edge: The Bob Hoover Project."
After Mrs. Furst addressed the room, it was time for the unveiling of Mr. Hoover's Exemplar Case with Memorabilia.
