Congratulations to the Class of 2021 on their Branch Night!
Washington Hall erupted with cheers and applause after the Class of 2021 received their branch notifications on December 2, 2020.
Branch Night's keynote speaker was Ambassador Dell Dailey ’71 (LTG USA, Retired) from the 50-Year Affiliation Class of 1971, who noted, “The branch you will receive tonight will define you.”
