U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis announced Friday that he nominated 11 students for admittance to the U.S. Service Academies.The nominations for these students were made following an application and interview process. Final determination on admission is made by the individual academies.
 
“As a Member of Congress, I have the privilege of nominating these accomplished young men and women to our nation’s service academies,” said Davis. “The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military upon graduation, so I applaud these students for their decision to serve and wish them the best of luck.”
 
Members of Congress are asked to nominate candidates to the U.S. Service Academies each year, and the number of vacancies for each congressional district is determined by law. It is recommended that applicants contact the academy or academies of their choice to request a pre-candidate questionnaire, which is the first step in the Admission Office’s evaluation.
 
For more information or to obtain an application packet for next year’s nominations, contact Congressman Davis’ Normal office at (309) 252-8834.
