(b) The Veterans' Council may annually honor each West
Virginian graduating from the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S.
Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Coast
Guard Academy with the highest grade point average by bestowing
upon him or her the "West Augusta Award." The award shall be in a
design and form established by the council and include the famous
Revolutionary War phrase from which the award's name is derived:
"Once again our brethren from West Augusta have answered the call
to duty." The council shall coordinate the manner of recognition of
the recipient at graduation ceremonies with each academy.
