Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) has invited Carthage Central High School students and twin sisters, Mary McCurry and Katie McCurry, to attend President Obama’s State of the Union Address in Washington on Tuesday, January 20th. The McCurry sisters are seniors at Carthage and both plan to attend U.S. Military Service Academies.

“I am beyond excited that Mary and Katie will be able to attend this year’s State of the Union address with me at the U.S. Capitol,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I had the privilege of meeting these two young ladies in the fall and was immediately impressed by their dedication and love for their country. I look forward to showing them around the Capitol and hope this is a memorable, rewarding experience for them before they begin serving their country.”

Mary and Katie are identical twins who were born at Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, N.Y. when their parents were stationed at Ft. Drum in the mid-90's.
