On Friday, Oct. 26, four cadets and Maj. Larry McClarey attended the fifth annual U.S. Grant Symposium, presented by the Missouri Humanities Council and the U.S. Grant Trail, held at Prairie View Church on the grounds of Graceland Mansion in Mexico, Missouri.
 
The cadets, Liam Holland, Garry Siccardi, Richard Choy and Shama Lurie, listened to presentations ranging from U.S. Grant's experiences in Missouri to the history of the United States Colored Troops in the Civil War.
 
Cadets were chosen to attend based on interest, deportment and grades.
