Reflecting on Our Blessings

Haerr Photo Hey, everyone!


Since my last blog post in September, I have finished out the fall semester of my 3/c year and have moved on into the spring semester! It’s been quite the adventure. Cheerleading this past fall semester was exciting as we mastered new stunts and dances, and our squad is now starting to cheer for basketball season. Civil engineering classes were challenging yet rewarding. We had an exciting Mechanics of Materials class, and in the lab portion we were able to test the strength of many day-to-day materials with these hefty machines. I also joined the Equestrian Club, which provided a great external outlet for me and my friends as we got to go to a stable here in Connecticut to ride some horses!


This semester, the Class of 2018 will be preparing for Cadre Summer. Many of us are anticipating being cadre to the Class of 2020 and cannot wait to teach them how to succeed here at the Academy and in the fleet as well. I will also be participating in the varsity Crew again this spring, and I cannot wait to get back on the water with the girls. It’s moments like horseback riding or being out on the water in a boat that make you step back and reflect on all the many blessings we have here.
