Midshipman Fourth-Class Clayton J. Cottrell, son of Mike and Beth Cottrell and grandson of Jim and Laura Bounds and Gene and Judy Cottrell, made the dean's list at the United States Naval Academy for the 2010-2011 fall semester. Midshipmen who are named to the dean's list receive a letter from the academic dean and provost, are qualified to wear a bronze star on their uniforms, and get a notation on their grade report.
Clayton was also invited to have lunch with Congressman Chip Cravaack on Monday, Feb. 28, along with other midshipmen from the 8th Congressional District of Minnesota. Clayton is pictured second from left, standing next to Cravaack.
