Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas presented Will Givens, an Arnett, Okla. native, with the General Billy Mitchell Award on Monday. Givens was presented the award for completing Phase 2 of the CAP Cadet Program.

“I am honored to present Will with the General Billy Mitchell Award,” said Congressman Frank Lucas. “His hard-work and dedication is a true testament to the incredible young people serving in the military. Will has demonstrated a high level of maturity and responsibility, and I am very proud of his accomplishments. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

To earn the Mitchell award, Givens had to pass comprehensive leadership and aerospace exams. He also had to pass a rigorous physical fitness test, and he completed an encampment. Additionally, to move into cadet officer ranks, Givens had to exhibit very mature behavior, to be highly responsible and demonstrate leadership skills before he could take his exams.

The U.S. Air Force highly regards cadets’ membership in Civil Air Patrol. Cadets who receive the award are eligible for advanced placement to the grade of E-3 (Airman First Class) should they enter the Air Force. They are also eligible for advanced credit in the Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Course, for various CAP scholarships, and for CAP special activity opportunities.

Givens is a student at the Oklahoma School of Science and Math and he is the son of Ruth Ann and Weston Givens of Arnett, Okla.
