Sen. Brian Schatz reports the names of 42 students nominated to attend one of our nation’s service academies on Monday, March 25, 2019. The four service academies are: the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Military Academy, the United States Naval Academy and the United States Merchant Marine Academy.

“The students who attend our country’s service academies represent the best the United States has to offer,” said Sen. Schatz. “I look forward to seeing these young men and women grow into the next generation of military leaders.”

Service Academy nominees were selected by a panel that included Allen Hoe, a decorated Vietnam War veteran and current Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army for East Hawai‘i. Applicants were considered based on their ability to successfully meet the rigorous demands for the undergraduate education and training of officers of the United States Armed Forces, as well as their demonstrated leadership skills through athletics and other organizations, and an overall commitment to the military, the community and our country. Nominees will now be considered for appointment by the U.S. Service Academies.

The following nominees were named for consideration into our nation’s service academies:
