Age: 17

Family: Parents, Sam and Carolyn Soyring; brother, Zack, 20.

Residence: Canonsburg

School: Soyring will be a senior at Canon-McMillan High School this fall.

Hobbies/interests: Soyring is a cadet senior airman with the Civil Air Patrol's Washington Squadron 601 and a Private 1st Class in the Army Reserves. He runs cross country for Canon-McMillan High School and competes in the pole vault, the 4x100 meter relay and the 400 hurdles on the varsity track team.

Noteworthy: Soyring will spend his entire summer vacation at Fort Jackson, S.C., for basic training with the Army Reserves. He expects the summer to be physically demanding and to help him prepare for a career in the military. Soyring left Monday and will miss the first week of classes in the fall. Through an early enlistment program, he joined the Army Reserves on his 17th birthday.

Quote: “My whole summer is dedicated to the Army this year. This a step toward what I want to do for a living. I hope it helps me grow as a person and helps me get a better a understanding of what the Army is and what it entails.”

— Aaron Aupperlee
