Cadet 2nd Class Raychel Blocher, of Paris, marched in the 58th Presidential Inauguration Parade in the nation's capital on Jan. 20.
Blocher, a graduate of Minerva High School, is a member of the Air Force Academy's Cadet Squadron 31.
She was one of 83 Air Force Academy cadets who marched the 1.7 mile route from the Capitol to the White House.
"I feel very honored for being selected to participate in the Inauguration parade," said Blocher. "I'm excited to come support our new commander-in-chief and represent the United States Air Force Academy. My sister went to President Obama's inauguration when she was a student at Georgetown and she thought it was a wonderful experience, so it's pretty awesome that I got to partake in this inauguration. I plan on coming back to school to share my experiences with my classmates."
