U.S. Representative Richard Hudson, R-8, has nominated 20 students from throughout the eighth district to U.S. service academies. During a ceremony on Feb. 9, at Montgomery Community College in Troy, Hudson congratulated the students and thanked them for their willingness to serve.
“As Fort Bragg’s Congressman, it’s an honor to nominate high school students for service academies each year who will go on to join the next generation of brave men and women in uniform,” Hudson said. “These students, like all others, have endured incredible challenges over the past year but are some of the best and brightest in our state and nation. I applaud them for their hard work and dedication to serving our country.”
As Representative of North Carolina’s eighth congressional district, Hudson has the privilege of nominating a limited number of young men and women each year to four of the five service academies: the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
If accepted, the honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.
Two Rowan County students were nominated. Thomas Bristol of Gray Stone Day School, was nominated to U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Naval Academy. Grace Parker, of A.L. Brown High School, was nominated to U.S. Naval Academy.
