Local Boy Makes Good

This former student of mine isn't a boy anymore; no, he's becoming a very impressive man:
MIDN 1/C Cameron Thornberry is from Sacramento, CA where he attended Rio Americano High School and graduated in 2008. After graduation he entered the Naval Academy as a member of the great class of 2012. Throughout his four years at USNA, MIDN Thornberry participated in myriad activities and organizations in pursuit of his passion towards both aviation and philosophy. An Aerospace Engineering major with an astounding GPA of 3.92, he is a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, the Naval Academy Soaring Team training squadron (VT-NA), the Socratic Society, and the Jiu Jitsu team. Professionally he assumed and excelled at his positions of Squad Leader, Company Academics Officer, and, most recently, Battalion Academics Officer. Upon graduation, MIDN Thornberry will train to become a naval aviator.
He was a licensed civil pilot before entering USNA.
