Last week, U.S. Senator Tom Udall announced 45 New Mexico students who have received his nomination to attend a United States service academy beginning in 2014, including five students from Northern New Mexico.
A congressional, vice-presidential, or service-connected nomination is required for admission to the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
To receive a nomination from Udall, students completed a competitive application process which included an interview with his Military Academy Service Panels, comprised of military and community leaders.
Two of the students are from Los Alamos — Alexander Kirkland and Matthew Davenport. Kirkland is going to the Naval Academy and Davenport is going to the Air Force Academy.
“It is my honor to congratulate the students I have nominated to the service academies this year,” said Udall. “These students have distinguished themselves both in and out of the classroom, and they represent some of New Mexico’s best and brightest.
