The Wright Brothers Awardees were Cadet Staff Sergeants Edward Crouch, John Rowan, and Mac Spurlock. The Wright Brothers Award is the first milestone achievement in the CAP Cadet Program, and marks the transition for cadets into the non-commissioned officer grades and the attendant supervisory responsibilities of those grades.

Additionally, Cadet Captain Matthew Bevard was presented the Amelia Earhart Award. The Earhart Award is third milestone achievement in the CAP Cadet Program. It marks the transition for cadets into the senior officer grades, known as the executive phase. Only 3% of all cadets reach this level of the cadet program. Cadets who have earned the Earhart Award and continue on to participate in Air Force ROTC in college may be granted advanced credit in their leadership laboratory classes.
