Trio of PWHS students receive service academy nominations

The students are among 22 seniors from the 3rd Congressional District to receive the nomination.

“These students have worked incredibly hard to earn a nomination, and it’s a true honor to be able to recommend them to our nation’s distinguished service academies. Because of their academic and extracurricular achievements, outstanding moral character, and dedication to our country, I’m confident that each of them would make dependable, capable and successful officers should they be accepted into the academies,” Tipton said in a written statement.

“The 3rd district is blessed to have so many talented and well-rounded young people.”
