Earlier this month, General McLane High School junior Alex Lofgren was presented a Pennsylvania House of Representatives Citation by Representative Ryan Bizzarro.

The citation was given at the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Squadron 502‘s annual banquet in honor of his recent achievements with CAP, the official auxiliary of the United States Air Force.  As a member, Lofgren participates in the Cadet Programs whose key elements are Aerospace, Leadership and Emergency Services.

Alex achieved the General Billy Mitchell Award this past fall, which marks his halfway point through the cadet program.  To earn this award, which also earned him the rank of Cadet Second Lieutenant, Alex needed to complete the Cadet Physical Fitness Test, pass comprehensive exams in Leadership and Aerospace Education and meet specific leadership expectations.

Only 15 percent of Civil Air Patrol cadets achieve the Mitchell Award and rank of Cadet Second Lieutenant. By earning both, Alex is now eligible to receive CAP scholarships and advanced placement of Airman First Class, should choose to enter the Air Force.

Congratulations to Alex on this outstanding achievement!
