Jonathan Parham’s ’23 great-grandfather did not get to finish his West Point experience 90 years ago, but it’s a very different world these days. For Jonathan, the mission was accomplished.
The 22-year-old Frontier High School graduate has just completed four years at the U.S. Army Academy – an achievement in itself. But the newly minted Army lieutenant also achieved closure for a difficult piece of family history. His great-grandfather, Alonzo Parham, was dismissed from West Point in 1929.
