From the Co-Presidents

Hello CPC families!


Congratulations to the Firsties on their upcoming graduation! We are so proud of you!


A job well done to all of the cadets finishing out the academic year!


As it does every year, the CPC hosts two cadet awards - The Most Valuable Woman Athlete and The Most Valuable Male Soccer Player. We would like to congratulate this year’s winners. They will be presented on May 28, 2024 at the USAFA Graduation Awards Ceremony and Athletic Department Awards Ceremony. We are proud to represent USAFA Colorado Parents' Club in person at these award ceremonies. Thank you to everyone who purchased Goodie Bags - Goodie Bag sales help fund these awards.


Our annual In-Processing Day Picnic, our signature event, is just a few short weeks away on Wednesday, June 26, 2024. Join us in welcoming the Class of 2028 and their families. We will be hosting the picnic just outside of Arnold Hall. DooLittle Hall will be under construction and we could not use their facility. We need many volunteers to have our picnic be successful. We need help especially for set-up (5:30 am to 7:30 am and tear down (2:30 pm to 5 pm) VOLUNTEER. Any amount of time you can help us will be greatly appreciated! 


We are still requesting volunteers for our Executive Board for the 2024-2025 academic year. Please email president@usafacpc.org, if you are interested. Our biggest needs to complete the board for this upcoming academic year are Secretary & Treasurer!


Thanks to everyone for volunteering your time to make this year successful!


Danny & Kathy Cometto,
