Royal Palm Beach High School junior Brianne Cook has been selected to attend the first session of the United States Naval Academy’s Summer Seminar. She is one of approximately 2,500 young men and women from across the U.S. and abroad invited to participate this summer.
The requirements needed in order to qualify include: superior high school performance, demonstrated achievement in athletics and extracurricular activities, physically fit and in good health with normal vision, positive attitude, self-disciplined and of good moral character.
The seminar is a fast-paced leadership experience that helps educate, motivate and prepare students who are considering applying for admission to the academy.
During the six-day session, Cook will become a part of the academy, by living in the dormitory in which all academy midshipmen live, eating in the dining hall, participating in academic and leadership workshops and experiencing a variety of other activities on the campus. She will have an opportunity to see first-hand what the academy has to offer through its exceptional academic, athletic, extracurricular activities and leadership training programs.
The Summer Seminar has an academic focus. Each student attends eight 90-minute workshops on a wide variety of topics.
