Marble Falls High School senior prepares for Air Force academy; another Mustang headed to West Point

MARBLE FALLS — Marble Falls High School senior Austin Sellers won’t get much of a break between graduation and his next assignment — life as a cadet at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Graduation is May 28.

"The U.S. Air Force Academy is a lot different than the typical college," said Sellers, who wants to be a pilot. "You have a whole military component that you don’t find at most colleges and universities."

Sellers learned this spring he had earned a spot in the next Air Force Academy cadet class, which starts June 23.

Sellers isn’t the only Marble Falls High student with academy ambitions.

William Nelson, who graduated May 2010, will start at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., this summer. Nelson graduates May 13 from the United States Military Academy Prep School at Fort Monmouth, N.J.
