Sam Johnson Congratulates 26 Students on U.S. Service Academy Appointments
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) hosted his final annual Academy Appointee Send-Off Ceremony to congratulate the 26 Collin County students 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 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 our Great Nation, and I wish them the best on the endeavor they are about to undertake.”
Congressman Johnson will nominate a final class of students for 2019 Academy appointments in late fall of 2018.
Students interested in learning more about U.S. Service Academies, military life, and how to apply, are encouraged to:
1) Contact Gabriella Pate in Congressman Johnson’s Plano office at (469) 304-0382; and
2) Attend Congressman Johnson’s free Academy Information Session on Saturday, September 29th, 2018, in Frisco. The annual fall session provides students with an opportunity to learn more about each Academy and speak with each Academy’s respective liaisons.
