A Sheppard Air Force Base student was named a semi finalist for the 2012 Military Child of the Year Award.
Operation Homefront announced the semi finalists Friday, February 24. A committee that includes active duty military personnel, Family Readiness Support Assistants, teachers, military mothers, and community members chose Jacob Percival, 11.
In December, as a Cub Scout, Jacob earned the Arrow of Light, the highest award a Cub Scout can earn. Now in a Boy Scout troop, Jacob is studying navigation, orienteering and geo-caching. He hopes to someday become an entrepreneur.
Operation Homefront will announce five finalists March 1. The recipient of the Military Child of the Year Award will be announced March 8.
