SHELBY ANNOUNCES NOMINEES TO U.S. SERVICE ACADEMIES FROM MONTGOMERY AND ELMORE COUNTIES

Students from the Montgomery and Elmore Counties have been Nominated

U. S. Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) today applauded several Montgomery and Elmore County students who were nominated to the United States Service Academies. The service academies include the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Senator Shelby said, “Furthering one’s education at our nation’s service academies is remarkable. These students have shown exemplary performance in the classroom and in their extracurricular activities. The selection process for the academies is extremely competitive, and I was pleased to have been able to nominate a number of students from Montgomery and Elmore Counties.”

Service academy nominees must be residents of Alabama and must complete the required ACT and SAT exams. Applicants are also required to provide letters of recommendation, their school transcript, completed medical examination, and the required application form.

The following Montgomery and Elmore County students have been nominated:

 

  • Kyle Norris, son of Brian and Flora Norris of Pike Road, and a student at LAMP Magnet High School, has been nominated to the United States Air Force Academy.

     

  • Aaron Webster, son of Kenneth and Paula Webster of Montgomery, and a student at Evangel Christian Academy, has been nominated to the United States Military Academy.

     

  • Paul McDonald, son of Steven and Edith McDonald of Killen, and a student at Brooks High School, has been nominated to the United States Military Academy.

Although Senator Shelby nominated these students, the academy to which they were nominated will make the final selection.
