GLEN ROCK, NJ – On Saturday, June 20, 2020, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) congratulated over zoom the Fifth District high school students he nominated to one of the four U.S. service academies this cycle, including the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Gottheimer selected the students through the counsel of a community advisory board comprised of local leaders and veterans who have served in different branches of the armed forces. They help Gottheimer select the best, brightest, most well-rounded group of students to be nominated.

“One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to meet all the incredible students who show such a strong dedication to serving our country at a young age, and I’m happy that was able to happen virtually,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “Each one of them has displayed excellence in academics, athletics, and in their communities and I am so impressed and so proud of what they’ve accomplished and what they will accomplish. Their dedication to service is admirable and I will continue to do whatever I can in Congress to support those who serve and have served our country.”
The full list of students nominated and accepted offers to attend one of the renowned Military Service Academies is below. More information about the nomination process is available on Gottheimer’s House website.
