31 area students nominated to attend service academies
Thirty-one students have been nominated to attend the U.S. Service Academies. The nominees now compete to receive an appointment directly from the service academy.

“Each of these young men and women has already contributed so much to their communities. It is my privilege to nominate these outstanding students to attend one of our service academies," Rep. Trey Gowdy (S.C. – 4) said. "Their commitment to serving this country should be inspiring to us all.”

A committee of current and retired military officers recommend the Congressman’s academy nominations based on their academic, service and leadership record. Attending a service academy comes with a commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years.
