Whitman Student Named to Naval Academy

Zach Cammer will head to service academy after graduation.

Whitman senior Zach Cammer has been  appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy  in Annapolis, Md., after graduationin June.

“It’s been a goal of Zach’s since the seventh grade,” said proud dad, Steven Cammer. “He‘s excelled in scouting and he’s a natural leader, and I know he’s going to excel in our armed forces. I’m so proud of him.”

Whether it's cross-country in the fall or winter and spring track, Zach has been a regular fixture in Whitman’s highly successful track program. “His dream of entering the Naval Academy is now his reality,” said Whitman track coach Rob Conroy. “Zach is an incredibly intelligent young man and a hard-working student. As long as I’ve known him he’s expressed an interest in the Naval Academy.” Zach will continue with track at the collegiate level after a highly successful high school run where he has helped lead his cross-country team to two county championships. He is Whitman’s best mile runner, posting a 4:18 average.

Zach will major in either English or computer sciences. He plans on a career as a United States Marine Corps officer.

“Academically, athletically, and soon to be an Eagle Scout, Zach is the complete package,” said Principal Kathleen Acker. “He’s a good citizen and always has a smile on his face. He’s been such an asset to the Whitman family."
