Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36) today announced the successful appointments of seven high school students from the 36th District of Texas whom he nominated earlier this year to attend U.S. service academies.

“One of the distinct honors of serving in the U.S. House of Representatives is the opportunity to nominate exceptional young men and women to be considered for appointment to our nation’s service academies,” said Rep. Babin. “I couldn’t be more impressed and excited for these seven students as they take on this opportunity of a lifetime.  As the father of a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, I understand the unique opportunities presented to those who attend a service academy.  I wish them all the best as they seek to further their education and honorably serve our nation in the U.S. Military. I would also like to thank the members of our academy nominating committee who interviewed the candidates and dedicated considerable time and effort to making sure our academies have the best candidates to consider.”

The following high school nominees from Orange County have accepted their appointments:
