Valley Christian High School senior Shanna Chen, Class of 2014 and a resident of Ahwatukee, has chosen to accept an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Chen received appointments to the Coast Guard Academy and the Air Force Academy. She also had been offered a place in the academy prep program for West Point. Nearly all of the students who attend the West Point prep program go on to the Academy the following year.

Lt. Col Stephen Wood, U.S. Air Force (Ret.), will officially present Chen with her Air Force Academy appointment on May 14 at an assembly at 1:05 p.m. in the Bradley Gym on the campus of Valley Christian High School in Chandler.
