NEENAH, Wis. (WFRV) - A local student received special recognition today for her appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy.

U.S. Representative Tom Petri helped to present the Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition to Neenah High School Senior Emma Kiel. Petri nominated Kiel for the honor earlier this year, based on her high school records and leadership qualities. "I'm very honored to be given this opportunity, and that they believe I'm strong enough to endure everything at the academy, and to become a successful Air Force officer," says Kiel. "It's a huge honor."

Kiel was evaluated by a 14 resident commission of the Sixth Congressional District before being selected by the Service Academies.
