Ruth graduates from Air Force Academy

Eric Ruth has graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., receiving a bachelor of science degree and being commissioned as a second lieutenant.

He is the son of Daren and Carol Ruth of Johnson.

Senior cadets have the opportunity to serve as academy cadet officers who provide leadership, motivation and direction for the cadet wing and demonstrate effective officership in support of unit mission objectives.

The academy is a four-year military institution of higher learning that develops and inspires new air and space leaders with a vision for the future. The curriculum provides instruction, education, training and experience in academics, military training, physical and athletic conditioning, and spiritual and ethical development to all cadets.

The new lieutenants go on to serve as pilots, navigators, engineers, maintenance officers, professionals in various technical fields, and some attend medical or graduate school with special scholarships, while others go directly to non-rated Air Force-wide assignments.
