CCA student bound for Air Force Academy

Tom Lerum, a senior at Canyon Crest Academy in Carmel Valley, attended a two-day orientation at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs last week after being accepted to the Academy.

Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-Solana Beach) nominated Lerum for the academy. He will begin his training as a cadet on June 25 as a member of the class of 2013.

Lerum graduates on from Canyon Crest on June 12. There he served as captain of the school’s varsity water polo team. He is also president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes club at the academy.

In his junior year at the school he also served as a Congressional page in Washington, D.C.

He has been a Del Mar Lifeguard for the past two years.

Lerum plans to pursue a career in aviation and possibly with the Special Forces. He is also interested in world affairs and political science.
