Shelby Nominates Tuscaloosa County Student to United States Naval Academy

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today announced that he has nominated 24 students from across the state of Alabama, including one from Tuscaloosa County, to attend United States service academies.  The service academies include the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.


William Andrew Scott of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, received a nomination to attend the U.S. Naval Academy.  He is the son of David and Sonya Scott and currently attends Hillcrest High School.


“I am honored to nominate William Scott to the U.S. Naval Academy,” said Senator Shelby. “His dedication to academic excellence and his many achievements outside the classroom give me confidence in his ability to succeed in this new endeavor.  I believe he will represent Alabama with distinction 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.
