KABLE LEGION OF HONOR

The Kable Legion of Honor was instituted in 1922 in honor of Captain William H. Kable, founder of the Staunton Military Academy (SMA) and Colonel William G. Kable, who succeeded him as President. It was the highest honor bestowed on a graduating SMA Cadet or Alumni.

The medal was reestablished by the SMA Alumni Foundation and the Virginia Women’s Institute for Leadership (VWIL) in 2005. It is presented to the cadet or cadets who have been most conspicuous for leadership, good conduct, academic excellence, integrity of character, poise and bearing, unselfishness, and continuous loyalty to the highest standards of truth, duty, honor and an exemplary cadet life.

Requirements: Awarded to the cadet whose record is most conspicuous for leadership, good conduct, academic excellence, integrity of character, poise and bearing, unselfishness, and continuous loyalty to the highest standards of duty and exemplary cadet life.
