STANFORD, Ky. -- Lincoln County High School Senior, William "Reed" Campbell, recently received a Congressional nomination for the U.S. Air Force Academy from U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05). On Senior Night at Lincoln County High School, Congressman Rogers attended the ceremony to announce Campbell's acceptance into one of the nation's most prestigious military academies.
"Reed is one of only four students in Kentucky's Fifth Congresssional District who received my Congressional nomination and acceptance into a military academy. It takes impeccable grades and a high school career marked by leadership and volunteer service to enter the ranks of our prestigious Air Force Academy," said Rogers.
