"I did not know what to expect when I signed up for this class, but by day two, I had to call my chief and tell him that this was the best class that I had ever taken and the money was well spent."
--Academy Graduate 2012

“Great class. I probably learned as much about being a leader as I did about being in the Honor Guard.”
