Senior Kaitlyn Patterson believes in challenging herself. She immediately enrolled in honors and AP class upon joining Williams Field High Schools as a freshman. She also played sports her freshman, sophomore and junior years, only to take off this year due to her heavy AP schedule – AP Biology, AP Calculus, AP English, AP Spanish and AP Government & Politics.
However, it was not until a meeting with a good family friend, a former lieutenant colonel in teh Air Force, that she found what she was really striving: The U.S. Air Force Academy.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how far I can be pushed and handle it and to see what I can be successful at,” she said. “I’m looking forward to seeing my potential…. I can’t wait to go now.”
