Kofa student accepted to Air Force Summer Seminar

Kofa High School’s Nick Wissler was accepted to the Air Force Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He will attend the seminar from June 7-14, 2019.

"I have loved planes my whole life,” Wissler said. "It was fantastic when I found out. I literally jumped in the air when I found out."

Wissler said he grew up around aircraft. His father was a Marine and worked on planes. He found out about the summer program by researching online.

The Air Force Academy website states the Summer Seminar at the U.S. Air Force Academy offers a unique opportunity to get the Academy experience firsthand. It is specially designed for high school juniors heading into their senior year, and allows participants to see themselves as USAFA cadet.

Wissler is the second student from YUHSD to be accepted to the program. Cibola’s Jacob Avelar recently learned he was accepted as well.
