Memorial High's Niko Schillaci accepted for West Point summer program
Niko Schillaci, a junior at Memorial High School, was recently accepted to West Point’s Summer Leaders Seminar (SLS).
The SLS, which takes place in June, offers high school juniors the opportunity to experience life at West Point. As an attendee, Schillaci will live in the cadet barracks and take part in academic, leadership, athletic and military workshops.
Schillaci will also participate in a virtual-reality war simulation, and military and physical fitness training. In addition, he’ll be able to select three of the 15 workshops offered, which include 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 one-week seminar is designed to help juniors with the college selection process while giving them an idea of the importance of leadership and sound decision-making in their education, careers and lives.
Schillaci was also recently chosen as Memorial High School’s representative for the Spring Branch ISD Character Without Question Award.
