Washington, D.C. – Casper students Malia Hart and Seth White made Wyoming U.S. Senator Mike Enzi’s list of nominees to the United States service academies for 2019.
Hart received a nomination to the Naval Academy and Military Academy at West Point. White received a nomination to the Naval Academy.
Enzi nominated 28 Wyoming residents for the United States service academies for 2019. Today, he announced his choices for the U.S. Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy at West Point and the Naval Academy.
“Each year, Wyoming students demonstrate their patriotism and willingness to serve their country by applying to our service academies,” said Enzi. “In addition to a quality education, the service academies open doors and provide a unique set of experiences that graduates will carry with them throughout their careers. It is an honor to nominate these Wyoming students.”
Nominees are selected with the aid of an academy selection committee put together by Enzi. Receiving a nomination is the first step in the process of seeking an appointment to an academy.
Once the nomination process is complete, each academy will make a final selection. Nominees may also be considered for admission under other categories.
