Christopher Moon of Sequim attained the highest scores from more than 30 tests and quizzes administered to cadets during training.
Moon earned 92.8 percent on his tests and quizzes, besting the class average of 87 percent.
Moon, Mark C. Dorn of Edgewood and Christopher Daigle of Potlatch, Idaho, have been assigned to Port Townsend.
They were among the 37 State Patrol troopers recently inducted in a ceremony at the Capitol Rotunda.
The troopers were sworn in by state Supreme Court Justice James Johnson and received their commission cards from Gov. Christine Gregoire and State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste.
The State Patrol Academy produces only about three cadet classes each biennium, which accounts for about 120 new troopers.
Historically, only about 4 percent to 6 percent of the total number of applicants makes the grade to become troopers.
