Campbell County - Brookville High School track and cross country standout David Cedillo has earned a very special honor reserved for a select few.
Fifth District congressman Robert Hurt presented the all-state runner with a certificate of special congressional recognition honoring Cedillo's appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy.The 18-year-old, who carries a 4.26 GPA, got the official word just over a month ago he'd been accepted to the Naval Academy. He reports to Annapolis on June 27th.
David Cedillo, APPOINTED TO NAVAL ACADEMY, said "This has been something that I've worked really hard for, I've put a lot of time into this and something that I've dreamed about and it's finally, finally happening now. I have family members who went to West Point and so I've always known about it. But I think last summer I really started to get interested in it. I visited the campus in the fall last year, that's when I really realized that this is something that I seriously want to do and something that I want to pursue."
