Kristen will graduate with a degree in English, Rhetoric and Humanistic studies from VMI and currently holds a 2.97 GPA. During this difficult course of study, Kristen has completed a number of editorial programs which include cadet publisher for the VMI Alumni Review magazine and an intern writer for the AliveCampus.com website. She is also a very talented musician and is a member of the VMI Regimental Band, Jazz Band, and Glee Club.

The MAC Air Rifle Shooter of the Month is Nicholas Paisker of the Uniter States Coast Guard Academy.
The MAC Air Rifle Shooter of the Month is Nicholas Paisker of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
During February Nick, a Mechanical Engineering major, recorded Air Rifle scores of 573 and 585 against The Ohio State and the University of Kentucky at the NCAA Qualifier. This performance followed close on the heels of posting a match winning individual score of 575 at the NRA Collegiate Sectionals. Although not an air rifle score, Nick also took home a second gold medal, winning the individual smallbore competition, as he led Coast Guard to team victories in both disciplines.
Nick is multifaceted as he balances the rigorous demands of his major, school physical fitness requirements, military duties and, as rifle team captain, the heavy mantle of team leadership with a cheerful demeanor. While his combined load is heavy, he is on the Dean's List as well as being the top shooter on the USCGA team.
Leading by example, Nick is often first to show at practice. He makes good use of his training time but is never too busy to lend a hand to help his teammates improve their performance on the range, classroom, or barracks.
Nick is a valuable asset to the coaching staff. He insures that the team is well informed of training and travel plans, that cadet travel funds are delivered on time, serves as a go between to strengthen the link between coaches and athletes, advises the coaches on cadet matters that effect the team and training and serves as a sounding board for both athletes and coaches. Nick is an expert at separating the wheat from the chaff and seeing that the wheat gets delivered.
