Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Jim Lupey welcomed parents and guests last Friday to the 24th annual Camp Cadet graduation. After a week of receiving police academy-like training, cadets were each given a certificate of camp graduation, and the top cadets were rewarded for their increased efforts.

This year’s Most Outstanding Cadets were red squad’s Tyler Mosemann and purple squad’s Alexa Guyer. Most Improved Male Cadet went to purple squad’s Tavien Jones, and Most Improved Female Cadet went to purple squad’s Isna Hollenshead.

Nicole Hoffman, red squad, took home this year’s Best Female Marksman and Tyler Mosemann, red squad, took home this year’s Best Male Marksman. This year’s triathlon winners were also Hoffman and Mosemann. Hoffman took home best female time with 26 minutes and six seconds, and Mosemann took home best male time with 19 minutes and six seconds. Mosemann also took home the Cadet’s Choice award.

Along with training for a canoe/ bike/run triathlon and learning gun safety at Camp Cadet, located at Camp Sinoquipe in Fort Littleton, cadets were able to participate in many activities and presentations from the FBI, Operation Safe Search/Cyberbullying, PA Game Commission, PA Fish & Boat Commission, DCNR Forestry and ATV Safety, and Pennsylvania State Police Forensics, K-9, Fire Marshal, and Traffic units.

During graduation, Fulton County’s District Attorney Travis Kendall urged cadets to be educated on what they are protesting in an age where protests are made often. Pennsylvania state Rep. Jesse Topper approached the podium to congratulate the cadets on making it through their weeklong camp and encouraged them to not leave what they found at Camp Cadet. As the graduation ended, Cpl. Lupey turned to the cadets and urged them to “believe in yourself and don’t give up.”
