(Cincinnati Oh.)--A Cincinnati area student has been nominated to attend the U.S. Military Academy at West Point by U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown.
Rory is a senior at Turpin High School, where she is a student council representative and is on the dive team.
Brown nominated Rory for an appointment to The West Point Military Academy. In a Statment Brown said “Today’s students will be the next generation of military leaders, and I’m proud Rory has been offered the opportunity to attend one of our nation’s prestigious service academies,” said Brown. “Rory worked hard for this achievement and has demonstrated the leadership and commitment to service needed to represent our country and values. Her family and community should be proud of this honor.”
Each year, Brown nominates up to 10 students for each service academy requiring congressional recommendations: the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the U.S. Naval Academy.
A nomination does not guarantee acceptance into a service academy. The Academy’s Admissions Board ultimately decides who receives an appointment.
