Taking the Next Step by Siggy Miles
For Ashby Rickenbacker, his days to become an alumnus at Holly Hill Academy are quickly approaching. He has been a student at HHA for 15 years.
Only one more month until Ashby graduates and goes off to college. He says his experience at HHA was “long.”
Ashby’s advice to upcoming seniors and students is just “be open-minded.” He said he would change nothing about his high school experience and that everything happens for a reason.
Ashby dreamed of going to the Citadel. Through his hard work and his accomplishments at HHA, he has been accepted into the Citadel, and he received a full ride scholarship to the Virginia Military Institute.
But now he has a hard decision to make. He plans to join the Airforce ROTC program. Ashby’s inspiration to join the Air Force was from past family members. From a Raider to possibly a bulldog or kangaroo, I'm sure Ashby will find a new family just like he did at HHA.
