LaMalfa Announces Nominees to the United States Service Academies
(Washington, DC) — Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) announced that he has nominated 14 North State residents as candidates to the United States Service Academies. The U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Merchant Marines Academy each require a Congressional nomination in order to attend. The admissions process is highly competitive.
LaMalfa said: “I am pleased to nominate these remarkable young men and women from the North State. I’d also like to thank our review committee for their caring and unbiased interviews of the prospective candidates. Attending one of our nation’s five U.S. Service Academies is a rare opportunity to earn an excellent education while being prepared to be great leaders in serving our country. It takes students of the highest caliber to receive a nomination, and I wish them all the best in these unique opportunities.”
Congressman LaMalfa’s nominees were recommended by a committee of North State community leaders and veterans from various branches of the military. The committee recommended a slate of nominees after interviewing and carefully considering the academic and leadership backgrounds of each student who applied for the nomination. Having been nominated, the students must now compete with other nominees for an appointment to the academies. Academy officials will begin announcing appointments in January.
Congressman LaMalfa’s nominees for the service academies are:
