Eunice Lee, a senior at General Douglas MacArthur High School in the Levittown Public School District, has achieved a personal dream with her acceptance into Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY.

Eunice has been inspired to pursue a path toward the Marine Academy since she was a member of the Civil Air Patrol in 7th grade. There, she reached the rank of senior master sergeant and was a flight commander, and she adopted many of the high morals and disciplines taught to servicemembers.

"The Military Academy has always been in my eyesight," Eunice said.

At Merchant Marine Academy, Eunice will study Marine Transportation. She added she appreciates the flexibility in choosing a career after graduation - she may choose to work in the commercial industry or serve in the Navy.

"There are a lot of options," Eunice said. "I'm grateful to my parents and all of my teachers for pushing me to get to this point."
