Carl P. Cecil quote
Carl P. Cecil, president of the West Point class of 1979, at an ethics and leadership seminar for high school students.

We saw an opportunity to make a difference in our community because there are problems in the area where heroes are no longer heroes because they took shortcuts to get to the top, then were exposed for taking the shortcut, so we're trying to help guide these students. The message we're sending is based on the importance of duty, honor and country that was drilled into our heads at the academy...doing the right thing when sometimes that right thing is not as easy as doing the wrong thing.
