Congressman Steny H. Hoyer announces 12 students from Maryland’s Fifth Congressional District appointed to the US Service Academies.

The students, nominated by Congressman Hoyer, have accepted offers to the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the US Military Academy at West Point, and the Naval Academy.

Following an Academy Tea Reception in their honor at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Air Force Academy appointees departed to the Academy in Colorado.

“One of the greatest privileges I have as a Member of Congress is to nominate talented young people from the Fifth Congressional District to our service academies each year,” said Congressman Steny Hoyer. “The students who have accepted appointments have an exciting journey ahead of them, and I have no doubt that their time at the academies will prepare them to do great things in the future. I am confident that they will represent the Fifth District and the state of Maryland with honor and distinction for years to come.”
