Three graduate from Air Force basic training

Three Daniel Boone High School alumni recently graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio.

They are: Air Force Airman Courtney E. Hilton, Air Force Airman Paul Leavens and Air Force Reserve Airman Lyonus G. Martin.

The airmen completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.

Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Hilton is the daughter of Amy Guinn and Richard Hilton, both of Johnson City. She is a 2008 graduate of Boone.

Leavens is the brother of Andrei Farley, of Blountville. He is a 2009 Boone graduate.

Martin is the son of Debra and David Martin, of Jonesborough. He is a 2007 Boone graduate.
