As he began to develop a sense of purpose, he emerged as a well-rounded respected leader amongst his peers. I am extremely proud of Joseph for not only daring to aspire to become President someday, but for developing a realistic plan to achieve that goal. His acceptance into West Point speaks volumes about the potential that I have witnessed firsthand,” expressed LEAP Executive Director, Richard Reason Garrett.
