Lawrence-BovichLawrence J. Bovich Jr., 21 years old, was commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Navy on May 24, the same day he graduated from College of the Holy Cross as a political science major.

Ensign Bovich has been selected as a student naval aviator and will report to Pensacola, Florida this month to begin training. While a midshipman at the Holy Cross Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps Unit, he trained aboard the USS Ross (DDG-71) as a boatswain apprentice, and then joined the aviation community with initial flight training from Fleet Logistics Support Squadron 58 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Until Flight School, Bovich is serving temporary duty at Naval Base Newport as a sailing instructor. He will incur an eight-year service requirement after his winging in Pensacola.

  1. This story made my summer! So proud of Lawrence. Even as a middle school student at HBW Lawrence had great direction and goals towards a rewarding career. His teachers always knew he would make a mark in today’s world. Kudos to his parents for raising such a wonderful young man.
    Best of luck, health, and happiness Lawrence!
