I am thrilled about the upcoming cycle and feel privileged to serve as the Director. As we look ahead, our administrative team, staff, and cadre are currently diligently working on the preparations for the upcoming cycle. Our primary objective is to refocus our efforts and provide an exceptional educational experience for our new cadets, while also addressing their social, emotional, and educational needs. It is our aim to foster unity and promote collaborative teamwork, always keeping the best interests of our cadets in mind.
