Rahall Announces Service Academy Nominations
“It’s a great honor for our young people to attend one of the nation’s service academies,” said Rahall. “The education and leadership skills they gain not only develops fine officers to lead our armed forces, it shapes their civic and personal character for a lifetime. This year, just as in past years, I am proud to nominate these exceptional students who have demonstrated their tremendous potential to succeed academically and to serve our country.”
Rahall nominations to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point are Carl Dillingham of Princeton, a senior at Princeton Senior High School; Cameron Davis of Pineville, a senior at Westside High School; Kelsie Burns of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School; Montana Poole of Lewisburg, a senior at Greenbrier East High School; Emily McKinney of Peterstown, a senior at James Monroe High School, Lowell Farley of Barboursville, a senior at Cabell Midland High School; and, Nathaniel Haikal of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School.
Nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy by Rahall are Christopher Marcum of Williamson, a senior at Scott High School, whom Rahall chose as his Principal Nomination for 2013; Lauren Howell of Huntington, a student at Cabell Midland High School; Mark Filer of Bluefield, a home-schooled student who has also attended classes at Bluefield High School and Bluefield State College; Clayton Stewart of Cool Ridge, a senior at Shady Spring High School; and, Joshua Baisden of Huntington, a senior at Cabell Midland High School.
Rahall nominations to the U.S. Naval Academy are Leonard “Tyler” Lucas of Lenore, a senior at Tug Valley High School; Joshua Baisden of Huntington, a senior at Cabell Midland High School; and, Nathaniel Haikal of Huntington, a senior at Huntington High School.
A Congressional nomination is the first step in a two-step process for candidates pursuing appointment to the military academy of their choice. Candidates who are nominated by Members of Congress must then be selected for appointment by the service academy for the ensuing academic year.
