Elgin’s Isaiah Wasserbeck to join Air Force ROTC at Bowling Green

This is an installment in a five-part series highlighting a graduating senior from each of Marion County’s public school districts.

“I actually did fly an airplane before I ever drove a car,” Elgin valedictorian Isaiah Wasserbeck said.

Ever since, Wasserbeck has known he wanted to be a pilot.

The graduating senior will now pursue his degree from Bowling Green State University in Aviation, specializing in Flight Technology and Operations. He will also participate in the school’s Air Force ROTC program.

His interest in all things flight started at an early age because his father, Carson Wasserbeck, was in the Air Force.

“I was always a little bit interested in aviation stuff with my dad being in the Air Force, and then we got to go see the Dayton Air Show, and it’s just an awesome experience to go see that,” he explained.
