Saks graduates from Navy’s Nuclear Power School

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Preston K. Saks has graduated from the U.S. Navy’s Nuclear Power School at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.

Nuclear Power School is a rigorous six-month course that trains officer and enlisted students in the 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.

Saks is the son of Neal Saks, of Egg Harbor Township, and Nina Saks, of Margate. He is a 2005 graduate of Atlantic City High School.
