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.”mohun_natalie_101463
