'One of my highest honors in Congress is to nominate students who want to serve their country to the United States military academies,' Stivers said. 'We had an impressive group of candidates this year, and I am confident that Abigail would serve our country well and make Ohio's 15th District proud.'
To receive a service academy nomination from Congressman Stivers, candidates must be unmarried residents of Ohio's 15th Congressional District, United States citizens and between the ages of 17 and 23. In pursuit of a nomination, students submitted an application and were interviewed by Congressman Stivers' Military Academy Review Board. The Board evaluates the students on the basis of academic performance, leadership ability, and community involvement.
Congressman Stivers is exceedingly grateful to all of the nominees for their willingness to serve, and to the Military Academy Review Board for all their time in interviewing the students and making recommendations.
He encourages qualified persons interested in pursuing a nomination to one of the United States Service Academies in the future to visit www.stivers.house.gov for more information, or contact his Lancaster Office at (740) 654-2654.
Congressman Stivers represents the 15th Congressional District. He has also served more than 30 years in the Ohio Army National Guard, currently holding the rank of Brigadier General.
