Second Lieutenant Valentin Hinojosa (Class of 2014)
Posted by 2014 on 5/31/2019
MSgt Joe Ayala represented us this week at the USAF Academy and presented the “First Salute” to newly commissioned Second Lieutenant Valentin Hinojosa (2014 WHHS graduate and former Cadet and Group Commander of our AFJROTC unit) upon receiving his commission as one of the newest officers in the USAF. MSgt Ayala will share more however it impressed me when he stated our Commander In Chief, when presented the option of saluting and shaking the hands of just a representative number of graduates, the President opted to shake the hands and salute each and all of the 900-plus graduates, stating they all had the right to his respect!
The WHHS class of 1999 recently held its 20-year class reunion and collected funds from those classmates in order to help the current students at Western Hills High School. Sarah (Cartwright) Jung, a member of the class of 1999, was instrumental in collecting the money. Mrs. Jung presented WHHS with a check in the amount of $1,550.00. Current students Serena Nguyen, Yana Begma, Bailey Robinson and Jonathon Morgan were present to help Mrs. Flores accept the check.
