GRAND FORKS — A Red River High School student has been accepted into the U.S Air Force Academy.
Campbell Dorsey, a senior at Red River, was nominated to the academy in November by Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D. According to a release from Armstrong’s office, Dorsey was accepted into the USAFA for the fall 2022 semester on Wednesday, Feb. 16.
