A Conway High School graduate recently completed basic military training in the U.S. Air Force at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in Texas.
Airman Shakeya L. Smith, who graduated CHS in 2015, completed the training program earlier this month, according to a news release from Joint Hometown News Service.
“The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills,” the release stated.
Graduating the basic training will also earn Smith four credits toward and associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force, officials said.
