27 students from the Fourth Congressional District have been nominated for acceptance to four of the nation's military schools, including two from Highlands High School.

Meredith Laskey was nominated for the United States Naval Academy and Parker Harris was nominated for the United States Military Academy.

The US Service Academy nominees will be considered for admittance to the US Air Force Academy, the US Naval Academy, the US Merchant Marine Academy, and the US Military Academy at West Point.

"I applaud these individuals for their desire to serve our country and further their education," said Congressman Thomas Massie (R-Lewis County). "I am confident that if selected, they will make constituents of Kentucky’s 4th district proud. I look forward to seeing them succeed."


Nominees were selected through a rigorous application and interview process and were chosen based on academic achievement, leadership ability, physical aptitude, participation in extra-curricular activities, and demonstration of character. While a Congressional or Senatorial nomination is required for admission into the U.S Service Academies, it does not guarantee admission.
