The senior class of Doddridge County High School has one student who's getting the chance to do something few other graduates get to do. He has been accepted into one of the toughest schools in the country.
Senior Caleb Moore has been accepted into the Naval Academy. Moore was selected from a narrow field of applications. Thursday afternoon at Doddridge County High School, Congressman David McKinley recognized Moore in front of his classmates. McKinley says that Moore is an outstanding young man and thinks he'll do well.
"I honestly couldn't believe it! I knew it was very challenging to get in, and I'm very honored by it," says Moore.
He wants to pursue a career in engineering. He leaves for Annapolis Maryland on June 27th.
