Overland Park, KS – Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) announced today that he has nominated 24 area students to the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.

The Third District’s Academy Nomination Board, appointed by Representative Yoder, conducted interviews with the applicants following review of their applications. After receiving their nominations, the applicants must now meet the requirements of each U.S. Service Academy to be considered for appointment. Ultimately, the Academies make the final decision on who receives an appointment of admission.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to announce the nomination of 24 remarkable Kansans from the Third Congressional District to a United States Service Academy,” Rep. Yoder said. “Each man and woman nominated today represents distinguished character, scholarship, leadership, and service. I’m proud that these students are the future leaders of our country, and I wish them the best of luck as they seek an appointment to a U.S. Service Academy. Thank you all for your commitment to serving our nation.”
