Recent Bearcats’ graduate Altin-Myka Ong Hing was one of a handful of students included in U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (AZ-04) Service Academy Appointments for the Class of 2017. Altin was nominated and appointed to U.S. Air Force Prep School.

Hing told the Copper Basin News in February that the Prep School is a 10-month program he will complete. Upon successful completion of the program he will subsequently be admitted to the U.S Air Force Academy.

Congressman Gosar said in a statement, “These nominees have a proven track record of achievement both inside and outside of the classroom. I am confident they will grow into true leaders at their respected academies.”

According to the statement released by Congressman Gosar, the nominees went through a competitive interview process with Congressman Gosar’s review board, consisting of Gen. Jim Hunt, Lt. Col. Robert Leech, Col. John Knotts, and 1st Lt. Jim Muhr. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

Altin was asked by the Copper Basin News during an interview in February if he had a favorite quote he used as inspiration or motivation. He answered with JFK’s infamous quote, ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.’ Altin finished by saying, “As American citizens we are given opportunities to achieve. Once we find the opportunity it’s up to us to capitalize on it.”

Altin-Myka Ong Hing earned his opportunity with U.S. Air Force and there is little doubt he will make the most of it.
