Joseph “Vaughn” Roy, a senior at Western Alamance County High School, has been appointed to the U.S. Air Force Academy. Roy is a member of the Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps and a baseball player for the Warriors, and is passionate about flying. He sees the academy as a way to pursue his talent for leadership as well as his dream to fly. Roy’s faith has had a significant impact on his life and where he is today. “The root of it is my faith,” Roy said. “The Lord got me here.” Roy was nominated by U.S. Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C. For now, Roy is leaving his options open. He has not committed to the academy yet.
