Attended today one of my favorite events: graduation of Alaska Military Youth Academy cadets. The Bruckner Sports Center at Ft. Richardson was packed for the ceremony with family and well wishers. Governor Sean Parnell gave a well-received inspirational speech to the students.

The Academy's Challenge program is a 22 week high power program that includes academics, job skills, and service to community. It high rate of success is due to discipline based on individual self-control (what a concept!). The regular school curriculum (and thereby the State of Alaska) could profit from the some of the techniques that bring so much success to the students of the Youth Academy.
