Jamestown Marine graduates from officer school

Coleman Fuquea, the son of Susan and retired Col. David Fuquea, graduated July 6 from Marine Corps Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Va. Fewer than 1,400 students are enrolled into the sixweek school each year, with an attrition rate over 20 percent. Coleman finished third out of 43 students in his unit. He will now return to North Carolina State University for his senior year where he is studying political science. He will be commissioned as a second lieutenant when he completes his degree.
