Alumni Spotlight

Mykala McGraw, seven-year Club member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids and 2015 Cedar Rapids Youth of the Year, was recently promoted to Petty Officer Third Class Gunners Mate in the Navy! She has been in the Navy since graduating high school in 2015. This promotion came as a complete surprise to Mykala as she was originally scheduled to take the test for the promotion later in September and would have had to wait three months before learning that she was promoted. Due to her hard work, Mykala's command promoted her automatically. Congratulations, Mykala on a great honor!

Mykala is currently stationed in Norfolk on the USS San Jacinto. Her unit has been helping out in the Keys with the recent hurricanes and assisting other ships in air operations.
