Cadet Sarah Fairbanks, the daughter of Michael and Lynn Fairbanks of Nisswa, completed Cadet Basic Training (CBT) at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

Fairbanks entered West Point July 1 and successfully completed six weeks of CBT, one of the most challenging events a cadet will encounter over the course of their four years at the academy. Fairbanks began classes Aug. 19.

Fairbanks graduated from Brainerd High School in May. She plans to graduate from West Point in 2017 and be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
