Washington, D.C.— Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced eight appointments of qualified students from New York’s 21st Congressional District she nominated to United States Military Service Academies.
“It is one of my highest honors as a member of Congress to nominate deserving students from New York’s 21st Congressional District to our nation’s military service academies,” Stefanik said. “Serving in our nation’s military is an honorable calling, and their willingness to serve our nation and defend our freedoms is inspiring. After learning about each of their accomplishments and speaking with each student, I am confident this group of young leaders will represent New York’s 21st District well for years to come. I congratulate them on this significant accomplishment and wish them well as they matriculate this summer.”
Each year, members of Congress select students from their districts to attend one of America’s distinguished military academies.
