Local high school students receive congressional nominations

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) announced that 11 local high school students have been nominated to the United States service academies as they pursue their military careers. These students were nominated based on their academic achievement, exceptional character and commitment to community service.

As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Tenney can nominate a select number of candidates to the service academies each year. Students are recommended to Tenney for nomination by a local committee made up of community leaders and veterans from across New York’s 22nd Congressional District.

“As the mother of a United States Naval Academy graduate, it is my tremendous honor to nominate some of our region’s most talented students to these prestigious institutions,” Tenney said. “It is inspiring to see the next generation so motivated to serve our country in such an honorable and courageous way. I wish them great success as they begin this new chapter in life.”
