LEAP OrganizationClarksville, TN – Clarksville resident, Joseph Harding, has accepted an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point after his May 28th graduation. Harding, 19, son of Damien and Ursula. Harding, was nominated for the appointment by Lieutenant Colonel Chandler.

“My first impression of Joseph was that he was very quiet and mannerable, but lacked confidence and direction. 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.
