BISHOP MANOGUE CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL NEWS RELEASE – Four Bishop Manogue Catholic High School juniors will get a taste of military academy life this summer.
Stephen Osborne, was selected to attend the six-day Summer Seminar at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Cassandra McElwee, Natalie Mohun and Christa Young were among the 600 chosen nationwide for the US Air Force Academy’s week-long Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in June.
Referring to the Air Force program, local Air Force Admissions Liaison Officer Brent Zicarelli said that it’s unusual to have more than one successful applicant from a school. “It’s so difficult to get in, with some 3500 applicants from around the country. For Bishop Manogue to have three attendees is a feather in their cap, and of course says something about these remarkable young ladies as well.”
Specially designed for high school juniors heading into their senior year, Summer Seminars offer emerging leaders a unique opportunity to experience a military Academy first-hand. Participants stay in dormitories on campus, attend workshops taught by Academy faculty members, and participate in a variety of physical fitness and other activities. Criteria for selection include academic performance, achievement in athletics and extracurricular activities, character, and leadership potential.
