The top cadet at the Air Force Academy this year is a local.
Twenty-three-year-old Colorado Springs resident Andrew Sellers will graduate with his class this Wednesday. He has a three-point-nine-six grade point average and a scholarship to Oxford University.
Sellers also has been named top academic performer and top military graduate. Tomorrow, he'll be awarded with the Outstanding Cadet in Computer Science award.
Sellers says he's humbled by the honors. He plans to pursue two master's degrees at Oxford in computer science and related mathematics.
His father, Doctor Alfred Sellers, says he's proud but not all that surprised by his son's accomplishments. He says his son has always been a focused, hard working student.
