Two Shawnee seniors one step closer to receiving service academy appointments
Cole, a senior at St. James Academy, has been nominated to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy in El Paso County, Colo. Coleman, a senior at Mill Valley High School, has been nominated to attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.
A congressional nomination is just one step in the application process. Cole and Coleman still must meet other requirements of each service academy. The academies will make a final decision on who receives an appointment of admission in the spring of 2013.
A total of 26 high school students statewide received a service academy nomination from Yoder, based on applications, test scores and interviews with each applicant by the Academy Nomination Board for the 3rd District.
