Congratulations to …

Fox Cities has seen our fair share of graduating high school seniors move on this year! We wished Cadet Staff Sergeant Jack Gossen farewell as he started his career with the United States Merchant Marine Academy and Cadet Second Lieutenant Michael Chanda as he starts his career with the United States Air Force.

There is another graduating senior at Fox Cities Composite Squadron, who is not leaving us just yet. Cadet Second Lieutenant (C/2d Lt) Lauren Vassios, graduated from Menomonie High School in Menomonie, WI, June 2016. Lt. Vassios spent some time with the Eau Claire Composite Squadron, just recently transferring to Fox Cities Composite Squadron. She has been an amazing addition to our team, as one of few female Cadets in our Squadron she has blended in seamlessly and has been a great resource and role-model for our younger Cadets. Lt. Vassios will be staying in the area attending UW-Fox Valley to complete her core classes before auditioning at UW-Milwaukee to pursue her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre with the intent of continuing her musical career on Broadway!

Congratulations Lt. Vassios, we look forward to continuing to work with you at the Squadron while you finish classes close to home, and wish you luck on your future endeavors!
