Andrea Plunk has received a nomination from Congressman Jeb Hensarling to attend the U. S. Military Academy at West Point. Andrea is currently a senior at EHS.
According to a press release from Congressman Hensarling’s office, "Candidates interested in attending a military service academy must undergo a rigorous selection process and receive a nomination from a Member of Congress, the Vice President, or from the Department of Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps. These nominations are determined based on academic performance, college entrance test scores, physical aptitude, medical certification, extracurricular activities and demonstrated leadership potential." Graduates of the Service Academies are appointed upon active duty as commissioned officers, and serve in the appropriate branch of military for a minimum of five years.
Congratulations to Andrea and her family on this great honor!
