Homer Student Madison Sciera Readies for Annapolis
Since the seventh grade, Homer High School junior Madison Sciera has dreamed of a career in the United States Navy.
This summer, that dream will become one step closer to reality.
Sciera was recently selected to attend the 2019 United States Naval Academy Summer Seminar in Annapolis, Maryland. The exclusive seminar will introduce high school students to life at the naval academy, including academic, athletic and professional training.
Sciera is excited for this opportunity “I just kept jumping up and down,” Sciera said. “I had to ask my mom to read the email to confirm it was real.”
Sciera said the one-week training, which is scheduled for the first week of June, should not only confirm her desire for a career in the Navy, but will also serve as the first step towards her ultimate goal.
“I want to be a helicopter pilot for the Navy,” said Sciera. “Careers are opening up for women in the military, and I’d love to be a part of that.”
