It's not often that we can brag on a local student who goes on to bigger and better things, but since March is Women's History Month I couldn't pass on the opportunity to give props to Haley Bownds who recently graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, TX.

Joint Hometown News Service - U.S. Airforce

U.S. Air Force Airman Haley M. Bownds completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness and basic warfare principles and skills.

Bownds graduated from All Saints Episcopal High School and is the daughter of Christina R. Bownds of Lubbock, Texas and David Rubadeau of Las Cruces, New Mexico and step-daughter of Bill B. Bownds of Lubbock.

Congratulations Airman Bownds! We at FMX wish you all the best and encourage you to continue to "Aim High"!
