U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., nominated 26 Wyoming students for the United States service academies for 2018. Today, he announced his choices for the U.S. Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy, and the Naval Academy.  

“Every year, Wyoming students demonstrate their patriotism and willingness to serve their country by applying to our service academies,” said Enzi. “Apart from a quality education, the service academies open doors and provide a unique set of experiences that graduates will carry with them throughout their careers. It’s an honor to nominate these Wyoming students.”  

Nominees are selected with the aid of an academy selection committee put together by Enzi. Receiving a nomination is the first step in the process of seeking an appointment to an academy. 

Once the nomination process is complete, each academy will make a final selection.  Nominees may also be considered for admission under other categories.
