Local headed to Air Force Academy

John Ottusch V

John Ottusch V, a senior at Malibu High School, received appointments at his top college choices: the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Naval Academy and UC Berkley with a Navy ROTC scholarship. Ottusch will matriculate a week after high school graduation to the Air Force Academy, which he said was the optimal strategy toward accomplishing his goal of serving his country as a military officer and a jet fighter pilot. His twin sister, Rebecca “Becky” Ottusch, was admitted to the College of Engineering at UC Berkley.
