Cade Spreiter ready for final two years at Annapolis
Cade Spreiter, a Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy, is a 2020 Kasson-Mantorville High School graduate and was active in football, hockey, track plus the choir chamber singers. He said he felt all of his school involvement plus having good grades were helpful in getting appointed to the Naval Academy.
Cade’s grandfather and his uncle were in the service, otherwise, he does not come from a long line of military ancestors like some at the Academy, he said. Cade has a twin brother Reid, and twin sisters that are K-M students now. Cade hopes to commission as an officer in the Naval Aviation community.
The Naval Academy started on October 10, 1845, and is located in Annapolis, Maryland, at the Severn River and the Chesapeake Bay, 33 miles from Washington DC. It is the second oldest of the five service academies.
Cade finished his sophomore year and will return for his junior year this fall. This means he is now eligible to keep his car at the school and allowed to go on liberty in normal clothes instead of his dress uniform.
He is a part of the 14th company which is composed of about 140 midshipmen that live in the same dorm. They spend a lot of time together, especially with his squad of 10 midshipmen.
