Midshipman Stephen Sawyer has less than 100 days left of his Plebe year at the United States Naval Academy.

In addition to the rigorous physical and professional Plebe summer training which began last June, Stephen passed 10 validation exams, allowing him to begin the fall semester in second year studies. His plans include a major in Quantitative Economics with a minor in Spanish. In his first semester, Stephen achieved a 3.875 GPA, finished seventh in his platoon of 42 in professional evaluations and first in his platoon in professional examinations. Stephen was selected to sing in the prestigious Men's Glee Club and recently performed for the President and at Carnegie Hall.

Stephen has volunteered to participate in a summer training exercise aboard a submarine and will also lead the Naval Academy Summer Seminar Program for prospective candidates.
