Congressman Kevin McCarthy held a meeting with this year’s Service Academy nominees from the 23rd Congressional District which includes Kern, Tulare, and Los Angeles counties. Interested high school seniors requested a congressional nomination in the highly-competitive application process earlier this academic year.
McCarthy released the following statement commending the nominees on their selection:
“I have the sincere privilege of nominating high school seniors to our service academies annually – students who have made the decision to take on this immense challenge while also choosing to pursue higher education. I know that while attending our service academies they will receive world-class training and that their love of country will continue to grow. As this academic year comes to an end, I look forward to receiving updates from our nominees about their transition to academy life – they will make our community proud!”
