Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Feb. 14, 2018)—Congressman Tom Garrett (R-Scottsville), a U.S. Army Veteran, announced the nominations of students from the Fifth Congressional District to attend U.S. Service Academies. Part of the application process for young people interested in attending a U.S. Service Academy, is obtaining a nomination from an authorized nominating source, such as a Member of Congress.

In announcing the nominations, Congressman Garrett said:

  “These future leaders of America have shown outstanding qualities in the classroom, but also in the community. Those who attend these academies go on to become leaders not only in the military but in a whole host of different fields. In even applying to attend, they have expressed a willingness to serve and sacrifice for their country, and for that, they have my deepest admiration. These young men and women are a great example of why we have hope for the future of our great country. I am proud to uphold this tradition and applaud them for their commitment to our nation.”

“Each year, many highly qualified students apply for nominations, which makes the selection process very competitive. All of them deserve our gratitude for their desire to serve and protect our country. I am confident these students will excel at these institutions if they are accepted. They will be able to meet the rigorous requirements set by the Academies, and will serve our nation with honor.”

Congressman Garrett’s Fifth District Service Academy Nomination Board interviewed and evaluated applicants for nominations to the U.S. Service Academies. Comprised of veterans, past academy graduates, and educators, the Board was appointed by Garrett to assist him with identifying the most highly qualified applicants.
