Enrique L. Quinones has graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., with a bachelor of science degree and a commission as an ensign.
The Coast Guard Academy offers a four-year educational program of instruction designed to provide cadets the knowledge and experience essential to become leaders of character. As one of the smallest of the five federal service academies, the academy offers a higher education experience that emphasizes leadership, physical fitness and professional development. Cadets are required to devote themselves to an honor concept and after graduation go directly into positions of leadership in service to others.
He is the son of Sandra Quinones of Basler Street, Ladson, S.C., and grandson of Jorge and Elisa Quinones of Haynes Drive, Deridder, La.
Quinones graduated in 2008 from Charleston County School of the Arts, Charleston, S.C.
