Chloe David, 18, of Granger has received her appointment — that is, she was accepted for admission– to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
David was the salutatorian of the 2020 Woodward-Granger High School graduating class and is the daughter of Don and Susanne David of Granger.
She is the third eldest of six children. Her eldest sister, Savannah David, is a junior at the U.S. Air Force Academy, and her second-eldest sister, Sophia David, is a Yuk (sophomore) at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.
Chloe David will report to Colorado Springs for boot camp and in-processing at the end of June.
David was nominated for an appointment by her Congressional representatives, U.S. Rep. Cynthia Axne, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley and U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst.
The process toward earning a nomination/appointment is a multi-step and parallel application process. Several components — class standing, grade-point average, SAT/ACT scores, physical fitness test, medical review, interview with an Academy liaison officer and gathering recommendations — are taken into consideration in order to qualify for admission.
Established in 1954, the U.S. Air Force Academy is a coeducational, public, liberal arts college, offering students a strong background in military training and leadership experience that prepares them to become officers. Students graduate with a rank of second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.
