Northborough – After attending Loyola University for two years, 2010 Algonquin Regional High School graduate Daniel Polanowicz decided to forgo another year at the traditional college. Instead, he decided that being an officer in the military was his calling, and that West Point was the best place to pursue his goal. He gained admission to the elite academy, one of the most prestigious educational establishments in the nation, which boasts astronauts, generals, business leaders and even U.S. presidents as graduates. The United States Military Academy at West Point ranks fourth in the nation for its production of Rhodes scholars, so by any standard, it is a significant accomplishment to gain acceptance to the school.
