Looking Back on EJ Coleman ’16
First Captain and Class President are two of the most challenging Cadet jobs the United States Military Academy at West Point has to offer. Emmanuel J. (EJ) Coleman III conquered both of them as a member of the Class of 2016. This feat has been done by only seven cadets previously, including General John J. Pershing and Heisman Trophy winner Pete Dawkins, and he was the first African-American to hold both positions.
