Help create a Colorado license plate to support West Point

The West Point societies of Denver and of the Pikes Peak Region and the West Point Parents Club of Colorado are trying to raise awareness of the nation's premier Leadership institution. Having a special license plate will help recognize those who have attended or are attending West Point. Funding derived from the sale of these plates will be used within Colorado on programs such as Denver Society's Leadership and Ethics Seminar for teenagers. Having access to own a Support West Point Special license plate will honor those that have served and help raise teenage standards and awareness of integrity and honor.

Sign the petition to help us start the process:



Our Denver West Point Society is kicking off a membership drive.  The most proximate benefits of dues paying membership in our Society are lower costs at functions requiring payment (Founders Day, Quarterly Speaker Series, Family Picnic, etc.). Annual dues are only $25 ($60 for three years).  So please consider actually becoming a dues paying member of our Society by clicking here. Doing so helps us hold the cost down for the Society's events throughout the year.



We also ask you to consider going above and beyond the normal call of duty.  The Founders Day link provides interested grads an opportunity to make tax deductible contributions in support of West Point and our Society in three different ways:

1) WPS DENVER OUTREACH DONATION - These contributions support our West Point admissions efforts here in Colorado, by funding our Admissions Field Force's attendance at local College Fairs.

2) WPS DENVER DISTINGUISHED SOCIETY DONATION - The Association of Graduates has designated our Denver Society as a Distinguished Society every year, for as long as anyone on the Board can remember.  Help us maintain that record by financially supporting our extensive list of annual events besides Founders Day, including: Rockies Games, the Navy game watch party, the annual Service Academy golf tournament; periodic speaker dinners, and the summer family picnic.  

3) SPONSOR A CADET CANDIDATE AT FOUNDERS DAY - Every year the West Point Society of Denver invites cadet candidates who have already received an offer of admissions, or who have been determined to be "admissible", to attend our Founders Day Celebration at no cost.  You can sponsor one of these future leaders by covering the cost of their meal, $70.

Were trying to raise money to fund the development of and the operation relating to a Leadership and Ethics Seminar for Colorado teens.
To help fund it (and other projects, since were sharing income with Pike Peak Society and the Parents Club of Colorado), were looking at creating a special auto license plate Support West Point
To start, we need 3-5000 signatures on a petition. Below is the link for our electronic petition. NOTE: we need your NAME, ADDRESS & COUNTY (Colorado only)

Suzanne CornmanI have been thinking about a lovely friend I made in 7th grade at Carlisle Junior High School . I believe, sadly, this might be her father. Adele were you at Carlisle Army War College in late 60’s? My maiden name was Suzanne Minich.

The WPS Denver held its quarterly dinner tonight. Attending were 26 graduates & spouses, from year groups ranging from 1949 to 2003. Jim Knowleton, 82 was the speaker and gave an inspiring talk on his tenure as the Air Force Academys 11th Athletic Director, his career leading to and what he sees as the challenges and benefits of intercollegiate sports at the major Academies. Those in attendance posed many questions regarding both AFA & USMA sports that Jim responded with comprehensive answers that enlightened all.  While we thank Jim for his talk, and his academy efforts, we all agreed that the over-riding call clearly is still: BEAT AIR FORCE!!

A society member recently received a collection notice for parking in the "approved" parking lot for the U-club at the March Founders Day. Fees & unpaid fine were "obscene". IF anyone else received a notice for the same parking lot (on Founders Day) please let us know and /or contact Bob Walcott (or respond here). He should be able to get the collection notice cancelled at no cost to you....
