Military news

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Timothy A. Wright, son of Les and Mary Wright of Palm Harbor, graduated from the Navy's Nuclear Power School at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command, Goose Creek, S.C.

Nuclear power school is a rigorous six-month course that trains officer and enlisted students in science and engineering fundamental to the design, operation and maintenance of naval nuclear propulsion plants.

Graduates next undergo additional instruction at a prototype training unit before serving as a surface warfare officer aboard a nuclear-powered surface ship or as an electronics technician aboard a nuclear-powered submarine.

Wright is a 2003 graduate of Palm Harbor University High. He earned a master's degree in 2008 from the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
