Dear Cadets Hall of Fame Committee,
We write today on behalf of the hundreds of Cadets color guard performers who had the privilege of being taught by Michelle Owens between 2003 and 2008. It is with great pleasure that we nominate Michelle posthumously for the 2019 Cadets Hall of Fame class for the many reasons enclosed. Though Michelle herself was never a marching member of the Cadets, she proudly embodied the passion, dedication, commitment to excellence, and values of tradition and comradery of a true Cadet. In her 6 seasons as an instructor, she passed these values down to each of us as she undoubtedly shaped the Cadets that we were, inspired the teachers that we would all become, and helped to build the foundation, character, and integrity of the adults we all are today. When we fondly think back to our time at the Cadets, our memories would be incomplete without Michelle’s presence.
