An Army Cadet from our area who attends West Point Military Academy returned home for the Thanksgiving holidays.
Jacob Scoggin is from Decatur, and attends West Point, where he is a junior. Scoggin plans to attend medical school after he graduates from West Point, and he plans to be an army medical surgeon. He talked about the opportunities the school offers and the people that he has met at West Point.
"You find a lot of people that are willing to serve their country and very smart and athletic people, so a lot of the friends I have made are great people, and they are very reliable," Scoggin said.
Scoggin hopes his experiences will help encourage more people from Mississippi to consider enrolling at West Point.
