Stackpole Joins USNA Summer Program
Belle Harbor resident Terence Stackpole of St. Francis Prep High School, will be part of the 2012 U.S. Naval Academy summer seminar session.
The youngest of five children, Stackpole is the son of Tara and Captain Timothy Stackpole, an heroic firefighter who died at the World Trade Center on September 11th. Like his father, Terence exemplifies the qualities of service and leadership. Along with the academic responsibilities of high school, he is captain of the varsity football team and he consistently maintains a grade point average above 95 percent.
The USNA summer program is expected to be a highly competitive and rigorous examination of what it’s like to be a student at the academy. Participants are expected to demonstrate their academic and leadership skills at the school’s workshops. There will be daily physical training combined with academic education in subjects that include engineering, information technology, mathematics, history, and the natural sciences.
The U.S. Naval Academy is considered one of the most prestigious fouryear colleges for students who aspire to be officers in the naval service. Referred as “Midshipmen,” USNA students are expected to serve on active duty as commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy or the Marine Corps after graduation.
