— Cadet Stephanie Marie Dudgeon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Dudgeon of Chester, recently completed Cadet Basic Training at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point.

Dudgeon entered West Point on July 3 and has successfully completed six weeks of CBT, one of the most challenging events a cadet will encounter over the course of their four years at the academy.

The initial military training program provides cadets with basic skills to instill discipline, pride, cohesion, confidence, and a high sense of duty to prepare them for entry into the Corps of Cadets. Areas of summer instruction included first aid, mountaineering, hand grenades, rifle marksmanship and nuclear, biological, and chemical training.

Dudgeon began classes Aug. 21. The West Point curriculum offers 37 majors balancing physical sciences and engineering with humanities and social sciences leading to a bachelor of science degree.

Dudgeon graduated from Chester High School. She plans to graduate from West Point in 2021 and be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
