heading to Air Force Academy
A proud Lynlee Davis announced her appointment to the United States Air Force Academy Friday at Porterville High School.
Unfortunately for the senior, the coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing school closures prevented her from making the announcement during the school’s usual signing day. But even in her small ceremony it was obvious to see Davis was thrilled about her next step and serving her country.
“I’m actually an immigrant from South Korea,” Davis said. “My parents adopted me and my brother and I’ve grown up in the best household with so many opportunities that I know that I wouldn’t have been able to receive if I hadn’t come to the United States. So the ability to serve my country and give other people those freedoms and that ability to do the same thing I did is just the best thing I could ever ask for.”
Davis knew since she was asked in a freshman year honor class she wanted to go to a military academy, and was leaning towards the United States Military Academy at West Point before she turned her focus on the Air Force Academy on Colorado Springs, Colo.
