Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) announced the 25 students who were nominated to attend a U.S. Service Academy: Military Academy (West Point), Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, Coast Guard Academy and Merchant Marine Academy.

Six of the 25 students who were nominated received appointments to attend a Service Academy.

Every year, members of Congress nominate students to attend the nation’s military academies. Those nominees who are accepted into the academies are awarded four-year scholarships that include tuition, books, room and board, medical and dental care.  The average award per appointment is worth $425,000.

“Each year, I consider it an honor to send you off on your journey to our esteemed institutions where you will be educated, trained, and inspired to help shoulder the wheel in defense of our nation,” Johnson told the students at a reception at Stone Mountain’s Art Station. “All of you are outstanding young people and you have the kind of leadership skills necessary to be successful in school, business and in life.”
