Perea named July Cadet of the Month

Aug 1, 2014 - From staff reports

The National Guard Youth Foundation has announced that Serena Perea, a graduate of the Wyoming Cowboy ChalleNGe Academy in Guernsey, is the July Cadet of the Month.

Perea, 18, graduated from the Wyoming program in September and is pursuing an associate degree in health and human services at Central Wyoming College in Riverton.

"I attended WCCA because I wanted to learn discipline and respect; specifically, I recognized the need to learn respect for others and authority," she said. "I know the program was a great benefit to me, and I truly believe I've changed my life and outlook for the better since graduating."

The Arapahoe resident will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship from BB&T, a supporter of NGYF and the Youth ChalleNGe Program.
