Teenage Millard was admitted to all five military academies
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – Eighteen-year-old Noble Rasmussen is a senior at Millard North High School who will graduate at the end of May.
“My friends and teachers have always known that I was a hard charger in my academic life at school,” says Noble Rasmussen. “Just getting things done as soon as possible and so I can get the best score possible.”
His drive to be the best is something his parents say he’s always had.
“We named him Noble to grow up with that respectable character and we’ve seen him carry that throughout his life,” said mother Cheri Rasmussen. “He’s a very disciplined young student. Homework and study come first before he goes out and has fun with his friends.”
Teenagers with military aspirations after graduating from high school were admitted to all five military academies.
Noble’s push to “aim high” is sending him to the US Air Force.
He said he chose the Air Force because he didn’t want to be stuck in a boat, or somewhere in the Army.
His parents said his blend of academic, athletic and leadership skills made him a candidate for each program.
“All of that put together is already a package that the academies want,” said his father, Kirk Rasmussen. “We’re really proud of him.”
Noble shared some tips for other teens who are striving for their own success.
“Be strong, optimistic and always motivated,” he said. “Just a little bit at a time and each day is how you get through it.”
He will begin classes at the Air Force Academy starting this summer.
