Congressman Doug LaMalfa announced the appointment of five students selected to attend one of America’s military academies. The service academy appointees are:
Dylan Booth — Cottonwood, U.S. Naval Academy;
Edward Buck — Chico, U.S. Military Academy;
McKenzie Cassingham — Shasta Lake, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy;
Anika Stickney — Chico, U.S. Air Force Academy ; and
Dominic Wiggins — Chico, U.S. Naval Academy .
LaMalfa based his nominations on the recommendation of his Military Academy Selection Committee, which is responsible for reviewing their files, interviewing the applicants, and recommending a slate of nominees.
“The opportunity to attend one of our nation’s five U.S. Service Academies is a great honor,” LaMalfa said. “After a competitive nomination process, I’m confident this impressive group of young leaders will excel in their efforts and proudly serve in our nation’s armed forces. They are a great representation of Northern California, and I wish them the best of luck.”
Any student with a strong desire to serve our nation as an officer in the United States Armed Forces is invited to contact LaMalfa in the spring of their junior year.
