Peter Zhu, the son of Dr. Yongmin Zhu and Monica Yao, of Concord, was accepted for the West Point Summer Leaders Seminar.

He was selected from 5,000 juniors nationwide who applied to the one-week seminar, designed to help them with their college-selection process.

Students had the opportunity to experience life at West Point, the United States Military Academy. Peter lived in the cadet barracks, ate in the mess hall, and participated in the academic, leadership, athletic and military workshops, including virtual-reality war simulation, and military and physical fitness training.

Peter, whose first college choice is West Point, will be a senior at De La Salle High School in Concord in the fall.
