Laskey received her nomination to the United States Air Force Academy from Senator Rand Paul in January and was offered an appointment in early March.  She will report to the Academy in June for In-processing for Basic Cadet Training and then be sworn into the U.S. Air Force.

“I'm happy Meredith will get to pursue her dream of playing college tennis at a service academy,” said Kris Laskey, Meredith’s mom and Highlands High School girls head tennis coach. “Her work ethic and team player mentality should serve her well both in the classroom and on the court at Air Force.  I know she will make Highlands proud as she wears the royal blue and white for USAFA Tennis this fall!”
