Sam Johnson Congratulates 22 Students on Service Academy Appointments
Washington, D.C. – On Sunday U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) hosted his annual Academy Appointee Send-Off Ceremony to congratulate the 22 Collin County who received appointments to U.S. Service Academies or one of the preparatory schools this fall.
“It is my honor to congratulate these young men and women who have been chosen as the future leaders of our Armed Forces by the prestigious United States Service Academies,” said Johnson. “It is no easy task to receive an Academy appointment – students must excel academically and athletically over the years, and they must also contribute their time, talent, and effort to the community. The nomination process to even be considered is competitive, and these students’ appointments prove they are the gold standard. Seeing their commitment and love of freedom, liberty, and democracy gives me great hope that America’s best days are ahead. I thank them for their willingness to serve, and I wish them the best on the endeavor they are about to undertake.”
Students interested in learning more about service academy applications should contact Gabriella Pate in Johnson’s Plano office at (469) 304-0382.
In addition, every fall Congressman Johnson hosts a free Academy Information Session on Saturday, September 17, 2016 with all branches represented for Third District students and families. The session provides students with an opportunity to learn more about each Academy and decide if military life is for them. Third District residents must be between the ages of 17 and 23 to be eligible to apply.
