Nikolas Monteferrante, son of Ronald and Pam Monteferrante of Pagosa Springs, has been selected to be among 1,000 attendees at West Point’s prestigious Summer Leaders Seminar (SLS) in June.
More than 4,000 students nationwide applied to SLS, which offers outstanding high school juniors the opportunity to experience life at West Point. SLS attendees live in the cadet barracks (dormitories), eat in the Cadet Mess and participate in academic, leadership, athletic and military workshops. The one-week seminars are designed to help juniors with their college-selection process, while giving them an idea of the importance of leadership and sound decision making in their education, careers and lives in general.
All SLS attendees participate in virtual reality war simulation and military and physical fitness training, and, in addition, each student selects three of the 15 workshops offered: Leadership and Ethics, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, Systems Engineering, History, Physics, Electrical Engineering, Human Behavior, Social Sciences, Geography/Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics, Legal Trial, Computer Applications and Programming, Foreign Language and English.
The following Pagosa Springs students have been named to the University of Dallas Honor Roll for the fall 2011 semester.
Danielle Pajak, a freshman chemistry major, and Crystal Purcell, a freshman biochemistry major.
