WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today announced that he has nominated 39 students from across the state of Alabama, including one from Wilcox County, to attend United States service academies. Service academies include the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
Miller Rutherford Lambert of Camden, Alabama, received a nomination to attend the U.S. Naval Academy. He is the son of Amanda and Frank Lambert and is a student at Wilcox Academy.
“I am honored to nominate Miller Lambert to the U.S. Naval Academy,” said Senator Shelby. “His academic record and achievements outside the classroom ensure that he is equipped to succeed in this new endeavor. I wish him the best of luck in this next chapter and look forward to his future accomplishments.”
In order to be considered for a service academy nomination, applicants must be residents of Alabama and complete the required ACT or SAT exams. They must also provide letters of recommendation, an official school transcript, a qualifying medical examination, and a completed application form – which can be found on Senator Shelby’s website.
Although Senator Shelby has nominated these students, the academy to which they received a nomination will make the final admission decision.
