With this promotion to Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Sandford is the only female high school cadet in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to hold this distinction.
Additionally, Sandford received the Eaker Award, which marks the completion of Phase IV of the CAP Cadet Program, recognizing sustained excellence in all four areas of cadet life: leadership, aerospace, fitness, and character.
