Jacob Stepp receives General Bill Mitchell Award

Governor Scott Walker recently presented Cadet Chief Master Sergeant Jacob Stepp, Civil Air Patrol's Eagle River Composite Squadron, with his General Bill Mitchell Award recently in his office at the State Capital. Stepp is an eighth-grade student at James Williams Middle School.

The event marked Stepp's transition to an officer and second lieutenant in the cadet program. According to Senior Member Laurie Stepp, the cadet program has taught her son "discipline, manners and good test taking skills." She has seen her son grow as a person and meet challenges head on. "He also now has a goal in life," she said. His ultimate goal in CAP is to become a pilot, something that he can begin working on in a year or two. His goal is to attend the Air Force Academy and obtain a degree in aviation mechanics.
