ACADEMIES: Add Hattenburg to list

| June 16, 2010 10:00 PM

I loved your story on Brent Burnside in the June 9 Press. I just want to set the record straight.

You stated that no other student graduating from CdA High had ever received three appointments to military academies. This is not true.

Our son, Scott Hattenburg, graduated from CdA High School in 1976 with honors. He received three appointments to military academies: U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Navy Academy, U.S. Merhant Marines.

    He graduated from North Idaho College and the University of Idaho. He now lives in Alaska and has his own Engineering firm with over 20 employees.

Congratulations to Brent Burnside. I hope he does as well as our son has. His parents should be very proud of him.
