Joshua Witt, a junior at Bloom Trail High School and a member of the Navy Junior ROTC unit, has been selected to attend a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics camp this summer in Pensacola, Fla.

Only 200 cadets out of about 84,000 in Navy Junior ROTC have the opportunity to participate at this year’s seminar.

Witt will be introduced to the collegiate world of science, engineering and technology at the camp.

Students will have the opportunity to see civilian and military career opportunities within the academic fields.

All expenses are paid by the Navy.

Witt has a 4.1-grade-point average at Bloom Trail High School.

He is a company commander on the Navy Junior ROTC Drill Team and is slated as the commanding cadet for the unit next fall.

Witt, of Sauk Village, is to become an Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 152 in Sauk Village in April.

Witt said his goal is to attend the U.S. Naval Academy after graduation from Bloom Trail.
