Blue Angels pilot tells NJROTC cadets from region to aim high

From the story:
A Blue Angel landed Friday at Bishop Kenny High School to visit with members of three NJROTC programs.

Lt. Cmdr. Anthony Walley, a Dunwoody, Ga., native and 10-year veteran Navy jet fighter pilot, spoke to about 100 NJROTC members from Kenny, Middleburg and Brunswick high schools.
Walley admitted to being the class clown at Dunwoody High School, adding he was "intimidated by academics" and didn't realize until later how important that was to his goal. But in 1992 , he entered the Air Force Academy, then was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy. Flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station led to his wings in 1999.
