Cadets Join the NYC SAME Post Meeting
Faculty members LTC Ben Wallen, CPT Tim Flagg and LTC Jim Schreiner took seven Cadets from different departments to the quarterly Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) – New York City Post evening meeting. The event was held in the Harvard Club in New York City. The USMA SAME student chapter is a multidisciplinary academic club which exposes Cadets to public/private engineering partnerships which are instrumental for sustaining the infrastructure of our nation in times of peace and war. SAME is dedicated to STEM initiatives and attendees of the meeting enjoyed a presentation and discussion by Mr. Jamie Torres-Springer, First Deputy Commissioner of the NYC Department of Design and Construction, and Ms. Nina Kubota, Vice President of the New York City School Construction Authority. Participation in this event enabled networking with key leaders in business, construction and administration within New York City and enriched West Point’s interaction with New York City as well demonstrates the close relationship between the NYC SAME Post and the USMA SAME Student Chapter.
