Three NWL graduates commit to the Navy, Marines

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 by ANNA GILGOFF in School

The call of the Navy and Marines has beckoned three Northwestern Lehigh grads to make a life-changing commitment.

Alex Schneck is one of two 2017 graduates who heeded that call, joining the United States Navy.

Schneck said he volunteered for submarine duty, inspired by a family trip when he visited a submarine in Groton, Conn., in his sophomore year.

“I thought it was really cool,” he said. “I actually like tight spaces [so] I wanted to get stationed on a submarine.”
