Conratulations to Justin- He is an outstanding young man that will go far. He also will be following in the shoes of another Brewster cross country runner and Annapolis garduate - Cecil Bolam Its an inspiring story and knowing Justin he has every chance to not only mastch Bolams exploits -but exceed.them- Good Luck Midshipman!!! Cecilk Bolam:Upon graduation from Brewster High School in 1932, he entered the ranks of the US Navy as Seaman Apprentice. Two year later he secured an appointment as Midshipman to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. This 185 pound Cross Country and Track ace’s exploits were such that he is still listed on Navy’s All- Time Cross Country letterman roster. .This Brewster Native, always proud of having come from the “Hub of the Harlem Valley” left a legacy from Tenderfoot to Eagle Scout-Seaman Apprentice to Midshipmen-Ensign to Aircraft Carrier Captain- Dirigible to Jet Pilot. As quoted in his Annapolis yearbook “Bo” Bolam has given “his Podunk what podunks ask of their native sons.” A shining example of Brewster Determination and Pride.
