NEW LONDON, CT. — Cameo Ulbricht was officially accepted into the United State Coast Guard Academy May 1 and will be sworn in at New London, Conn. June 27. She received a letter from the USCG Academy recognizing her for “superior academic achievement, leadership, and potential” for her studies at New Mexico Military Institute.

All graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree and are guaranteed a position of leadership as a commissioned officer in the USCG. The Academy Corps of Cadets are the nation’s best and brightest students, ready to serve and lead their country,” the letter states.

Ulbricht is a 2010 graduate of Ilwaco High School. She is the daughter of Rick and Ramona Ulbricht of Oysterville and granddaughter of Clem and Vickie Ulbricht of Brewster, Minn.
