Ethan D. Walters, a student at Letcher County Central High School, will participate in the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) Summer Seminar program.
Approximately 2,550 rising high school seniors have been invited by the Naval Academy to attend the program, which prepares students who are considering applying to USNA.
Each student will attend a six-day session and will participate in daily physical training and academic and leadership workshops. Students will attend eight 90-minute workshops on subjects such as information technology, naval architecture, mechanical engineering, oceanography, mathematics, history, and meteorology.
Students will also participate in seamanship and navigation classes and will take a cruise aboard a Navy Yard Patrol Craft.
Naval Academy midshipmen will lead the seminar with oversight by active-duty Navy and Marine Corps officers.
