Adele Buede nominated to Westpoint by Congressman Pete Olson


Adelle Buede

One Sugar Land student, Adelle Buede, stands out above the rest. Adelle will be graduating from The Turning Point Academy, in May. Her efforts have been so extraordinary that Congressman Pete Olson nominated her for The United States Military Academy, West Point.

After years of competitive swimming, she began playing club volleyball for Fort Bend Fire and for the Texas Tornados.

Most athletic students have a difficult time juggling competitive sports with academics…but Adelle is ranked in the top 5% of her class. She will graduate with honors. Adelle has been nominated for three military awards this year: The U.S. Army Reserve National Scholar/Athlete Award, the Marine Corps Scholastic Excellence Award, and the Marine Corps Distinguished Athlete Award. She’s also been awarded an NROTC full scholarship and an Embry Riddle Scholarship where, if she chooses, she can pursue Aeronautical Engineering. She says, “My first choice for the future would be to attend The United States Military Academy West Point. I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than serving my country…and receiving an exceptional education!”

Since she comes from a military family, Adelle knows about service. Through her church, St. Laurence, she has participated in numerous community outreach programs. She raises money for the cancer research with her athleticism. She participated in the clean-up after Hurricane Ike, earning a Volunteer’s Excellence award. Every year she volunteers for the Impact a Hero event. Her efforts have been so extraordinary that Pete Olson nominated her for The United States Military Academy West Point.
