Woodmore’s Ulinski appointed to Air Force Academy
During the month of May, the Woodmore seniors were given a poll to learn about their future plans.
From the poll given during students’ Academic Options, it was found that out of the 41 seniors who were polled, 11 of them are planning to attend the University of Toledo and 33 are choosing to stay in-state for their college education. Only eight are planning on going to an out-of-state college.
One senior, Evan Ulinski, is planning on attending the U.S. Air Force Academy, making him the senior who is moving the farthest away from Elmore, as the Air Force Academy is approximately 18 hours away in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Audience members gave Ulinski a well-deserved standing ovation as Lt. Col. Thomas Gyton presented him with his official Congressional appointment of his acceptance to academy at the Annual Awards Night held on May 17. Ulinski was also presented with a certificate of recognition by a representative of the Marines.
Ulinski made Woodmore history as a four-time state wrestling qualifier. He was a state runner-up this year in the 113-pound Division III weight class at the OHSAA state wrestling tournament.
He is the first wrestler in school history to earn a ticket to the state meet four times, the first wrestler to place three times at the state meet, and the first to win four league championships. (—by Window To Woodmore staff writer Allie Burner and journalism advisor Carolyn Nitz)
