ARVIN, Calif. - An Arvin High School senior has been accepted to the US Military Academy at West Point. The Kern High School District says Annmarie Narvaez is the first Arvin High School student to be nominated for this prestigious accomplishment. She is a standout basketball player and Second Lieutenant in the exceptional JROTC program at Arvin High.
"Annmarie is a great example of a student that sets a goal and works extremely hard to achieve it. She has been a superb role model for all to follow during her tenure at Arvin High School," said John Lunsford, AHS JROTC Advisor, Retired First Sergeant, U.S. Army
Narvaez credits the JROTC program for establishing her skill set as a leader and in helping her discover ways to be successful in everything she does. The relationships she has developed at school and in the community also inspire her. "Without this program, I would not be the person I am today, or have the goals I have today," said
