Essex High School Students Recognized by USAF
Three Essex High School students were recently recognized by the United States Air Force for their outstanding results on the ASVAB tests. Seniors Olivia Baker and Brianne Johnson, and junior Cynthia Swain all achieved above-average scores and were recognized by USAF Recruiter SSgt Jessica Montano of the 343rd RCS Air Force Recruiting Service.
The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) test is a nationally recognized test used by the US Department of Defense in grades 10 and above to measure developed abilities and help predict future academic and occupational success. Students across the country take the test free of charge. Nineteen Essex students took this optional test in January. While the results can be used to help the students determine a possible career in the military, it is also an excellent way for students to make informed career decisions based on their skills and interests if they choose to continue their education in a college or university program, trade school, or directly into the workforce.
Each of these students is active in a number of activities in EHS as well as in the community. They represent the very best that our area has to offer.
