On October 5, 2017, Will Trautman, a senior whose been attending the Bijou School for three years, joined the Navy. When asked why he joined, he said, “I wanted to be something bigger than myself, I wanted to be apart of a team, and to uphold the Navy code of honor,courage, and commitment.” He is shipping out for boot camp June 26,2018 and he got enlisted while he was still attending school because he is in the Delayed Enlistment program.
