Poplar Bluff senior accepted to U.S. Naval Academy

By Heartland News

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - A Poplar Bluff senior is the first graduate in more than a decade to be accepted to the United States Naval Academy.

Tim Kimbrow was nominated by Jo Ann Emerson and was chosen to be a part of the Class of 2014.

Kimbrow began the application process last year and went through several rounds of interviews and essays before being chosen as one of 1200 incoming midshipmen.

"You have to start freshman year," Tim Kimbrow said. "If it's not a goal freshman year, it's going to be extremely tough to meet the criteria and make it in the naval academy."

Kimbrow's dad was also in the Navy and says being accepted to the academy is something he's dreamed about for a long time.

"I was jumping off the walls," he said.  "I was excited. It means a lot to my family and the community."

Kimbrow's sister is also in the Navy.
