McDONOUGH — Five of the 24 students nominated to U.S. military service academies are Henry County students.

Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) announced his nominations for appointment to United States Service Academies on Jan. 13.

Henry County students are:

♦ Allison Corcoran, of Locust Grove (Locust Grove High School), to USAFA

♦ Kathryn Kadima, of McDonough (Naval Academy Prep School), to USNA

♦ Angelica Montes, of McDonough (Ola High School), to USNA

♦ Ansley Thompson, of McDonough (Ola High School), to USNA

♦ Bre’Asia Mills, of Jackson (Ola High School), to USAFA

Hice offered his congratulations to each student nominated.

“Each one has demonstrated excellence in character, scholarship, leadership, and physical fitness, and I proudly applaud their desire to serve as the next generation of military leaders,” said Hice.

While securing a nomination is a required step in the application process, the academies decide who will receive appointments of admission. Selection to U.S. Service Academies is among the most competitive and rigorous in the country. Those selected will enter the academies in June 2021.
