Hoyer Submits Class of 2010 Nominations to U.S. Military Academies


25 Local Students Up for Appointment

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD) today announced the nominations to the four U.S. Service Academies from the 5th Congressional District, which includes part of Prince George's and Anne Arundel Counties, and all of Charles, Calvert and St. Mary's Counties.

"All of these bright and talented nominees are deserving of the privilege of attending one of our fine military academies," said Congressman Hoyer. "Our nation has demanded a great sacrifice from our military men and women and it is reassuring to have met so many remarkable young men and women who are eager to serve their country. I wish them all the best of luck throughout the selection process."

These highly competitive institutions provide a top-notch education. In addition to teaching the leadership, discipline and communication skills necessary to be an officer in our nation's military, these academies teach skills that are invaluable in tomorrow's job market. Graduation from the U.S. Military, Air Force, Naval, and Merchant Marine Academies ensures a successful future for today's young men and women, both for those who pursue a career in the military and for those who enter the job market after fulfilling their obligations. The academies provide a tremendous opportunity for a quality education, but they also mold people into leaders.

Only a handful of students nationwide are admitted to the U.S. Service Academies each year. Prospective students must meet strict academic qualifications and are interviewed and recommended by a non-partisan Academy Selection Board appointed by Congressman Hoyer.

Once the nominations are forwarded to the Service Academies, each student's eligibility is evaluated based on their academic and extra-curricular record, leadership skills, physical stamina and other requirements. Appointments for entrance are offered by the Academies as the students are evaluated. In 2005, 28 students received nominations from Congressman Hoyer and 17 were offered appointments by the Academies.

Students interested in attending one of the Service Academies can visit Congressman Hoyer's website, www.hoyer.house.gov, for more information about the application process.

Attached is the full list of service academy nominations from the Fifth Congressional District.
