Herndon Playlist, Class of 2025
Herndon Playlist, Class of 2025
Every person we've talked to has had a unique perspective on the Herndon Climb. This year we go in a different direction as Chester Midshipmouse takes us through the Plebe Year experience thanks to author Susan Weisberg. From the demands of Plebe Summer, the grind of the academic year, and the thrill of Herndon, Chester shares all the emotions of Plebe Year at the Naval Academy, but also reminds us that there is life after Herndon. Featured music by Switchfoot, Toad The Wet Sprocket, Skillet, Imagine Dragons, Relient K, Fireflight, Superchick, Todd Rundgren, The Benjamin Gate, ELO, and The Beatles.
