Meet David Ricketts, USMC

In an e-mail from mom...
 
"My son David was in your graduating class at Culver Park last year.  You and your team helped him to catch up on his credits so that he could graduate on time.  I wanted to let you know that David graduated from the Marine Corps boot camp last week and is officially a United States Marine.  During boot camp, he was recognized for his leadership skills and promoted to Private First Class.  Only 15 out of 550 in the recruit class were meritoriously promoted.  He was a Squad Leader and also qualified as Rifle Expert.  He has truly found his calling, and we are very proud of him.  He would not have been able to enlist without his high school diploma.  Thank you to you and Culver Park for all that you did for him, he's on a great path and living his passion."
 
David came back to visit us today, September 4, 2015.  In a whole school assembly, he had the opportunity to speak to all of our students, share his experiences with them and answer questions.
