Butte High grad completes basic training

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Briana N. Wagner has graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas.

The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training also earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Wagner is the daughter of Sheila and David Wagner of Anaconda, and is a 2017 graduate of Butte High School.

Headwaters RC&D Area Inc. has formed a coalition with Butte Local Development Corp. and Anaconda Local Development Corp. to submit a Brownfields Assessment grant. If awarded, the project will provide money for assessing contaminated properties in the seven-county Headwaters region.
