470th "Wildcat Squadron" Leadership

 Hello I am MSGT Charles Cogburn and I am excited to have this opportunity to work with your child. I have served both this Nation and Community with Pride, Retiring from both the New Mexico Air National Guard and the Albuquerque Fire Dept. 

The Wilson MS Leadership Academy is intended to develop Citizens of Character and Tomorrow's  Leaders. The program achieves this through classroom education on Leadership Qualities and Characteristics,  Air and Space fundamentals and the Science of Flight. There will be  hands on learning opportunities in a number of fun and challenging extra-curricular activities. 

The Wilson Leadership program is grounded in the Air Force core values of

Integrity First

 Service Before Self

 and Excellence in All We Do

Exploratory Leadership Cadets will be on the Wheel Program and will focus on Leadership and Team Building Skills as well as an introduction to Aerospace Science.

Leadership I Cadets will focus on Aerospace Science and Engineering. We will be designing, building, wind testing and flying our own aircraft and rockets, as well as learning the basics of flying on our Flight Simulators.

Leadership II Cadets will focus on Military History and Civics. They will be trained in First Aid, CPR and Survival Skills. We will also further the Aerospace Science aspect with more technical projects.

There will be a degree of Academic rigor to the program and along the way your child will earn promotions and acquire new leadership responsibilities.

The Cadets will have the opportunity to become part of a Team and compete in competitions throughout the school year.

Wilson has become Nationally Recognized as one of the Top Programs in the State of New Mexico and the United States. With Numerous City, State and now National Titles!
