Colgan senior to attend US Naval Academy


A St. Mary's Colgan senior in Pittsburg is officially a member of the United States Naval Academy.  Only about 1,000 students get into the academy and it's believed he's the only Kansas high school student to be accepted this year.

C.J. Russell put pen to paper on Wednesday in the St. Mary's Colgan High School auditorium.

Russell says he is excited for the opportunity.

"To go to the Academy is a great honor and I'm very thankful and grateful for it," says Russell.  "I hope that when I'm there I can be the best midshipman I can be and to end up serving my country and protecting those who stay here."
