Bradley W. Pingel

Letter from Kenneth L. Pingel:

Our son, Bradley W. Pingel, as a 10th grader at Francis Howell High School in Cottleville, was a Gateway Young Achiever in 2005.

As you know, all of these young achievers are bound for many great things as they grow older and as they enter their adult life. We just wanted to inform you that Brad has continued on this path.

Brad graduated "With Distinction" from the United States Air Force Academy on May 25, 2011. He was also Commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant In the United States Air Force and is now stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, working on the space, rocket and missile program.

The International Leadership Network and the Young Achiever program helped make this all possible.

We just wanted to inform you of the continued success of one of your past award winners and to know that your organization made a great selection.

May all of your future award winners have the success that Brad has achieved and go on to continued success.
