AMA Youth Member and Dana Hills High School freshman Spencer French, 14, of Laguna Niguel has been selected to participate in the United States Naval Academy’s Summer Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Program in Annapolis, Md.
Spencer is very involved in aviation, serving as a Cadet Technical Sergeant in the Civil Air Patrol Skyhawks Composite Squadron 47 at Camp Pendleton. French also serves in squadron leadership as a Cadet Staff NCO and Flight Sergeant of Bravo Flight. He stays busy by playing junior varsity lacrosse, working on the California Scholarship Federation and taking part in activities of the Academy of Model Aeronautic’s Orange Coast Radio Control Club and the Soaring Society of America.
Congratulations to Spencer on this accomplishment.
