Prep Rope Ceremony
The Prep School had their most recent Rope Ceremony last week. Cadet Candidates who have reached military excellence by achieving the highest scores in military training, athletics and academics were awarded Ropes.
The Ceremony was performed slightly different this time so please keep that in mind when going through the Galleries for pictures - that there weren't as many taken.
