Frisco ISD Students Nominated to Military Service Academies

Jan 29, 2016

U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) is proud to nominate 36 Collin County students to the U.S. Service Academies for the Class of 2020.  Each service academy will make formal offers of appointment this spring.

The Frisco ISD students who have been nominated are:

  • Christopher Beltran of Heritage High School and Jaeyun Lee of Liberty High School – U.S. Naval Academy
  • Miles Charles of Heritage High School and Mark Simpson of Liberty High School – U.S. Air Force Academy
  • Madison Bryant of Liberty High School, and Jaxson Deaton, Andres Salerno, and Nathan Hwang, all of Frisco High School – U.S. Military Academy
  • Eric Han of Independence High School – U.S. Merchant Marine Academy

“Second to God, serving our Great Nation is the worthiest calling of my life, which is why I find nominating students to America’s service academies to be one of the most rewarding parts of my job as Collin County’s U.S. Representative,” said Johnson.  “These 36 young men and women have undergone a competitive and rigorous selection process based on academic performance; extracurricular, civic, and service activities; and athletic aptitude. Each and every one of them is a fine young American, and it’s my privilege to nominate these young leaders as they answer the call of duty. I congratulate them and know they will represent our community well.”

Every fall Congressman Johnson hosts a free Academy Information Session with all branches represented for Third District students and families. The session provides students with an opportunity to learn more about each Academy and decide if military life is for them. Third District residents must be between the ages of 17 and 23 to be eligible to apply.
