When Ronald White III, Admiral Farragut Academy Class of 2021 graduate, started high school as a freshman, he wasn’t even sure he wanted to go to college. Now, four years later and two years after starting at Farragut, he graduated with a track scholarship to attend the United States Military Academy Preparatory School at West Point with plans for admission to West Point in the Fall of 2022.
Ten years ago, an 8-year-old Eddie Gaines watched a YouTube video about the United States Military Academy at West Point and decided that that was where he wanted to be. Now, after having graduated with the Admiral Farragut Academy Class of 2021, Eddie has been accepted to West Point will start on June 28th.
