 Air National Guard Airman Alissa N. Connolly graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, 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 earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Connolly is the daughter of Patty Stevens of Old County Road, Pembroke, and sister of Heather Russell of River Road, Calais.

She is a 2012 graduate of Calais High School.
