LHS Senior Gabriel Franco appointed to US Air Force Academy
Posted on 05/21/2018

The Lockhart ISD Board of Trustees honored Lockhart High School's Gabriel Franco at the regular Board meeting for his recent appointment to the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.


His commitment to excellence and demonstrated leadership resulted in two appointments to military academies -- both the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Franco decided upon the Air Force.


Appointments to the academy are extremely competitive, with more than 10,000 students applying each year. Applicants must not only excel in academics, athletics, leadership and service, they must also secure a nomination from a member of Congress, the vice president, or president of the United States.


This year, the academy only accepted 1,160 students, and our #LISDChampion was one of this very elite group.


Congratulations to Gabriel Adam Franco on his appointment as cadet in the United States Air Force Academy Class of 2022! Gabriel Franco
