WASHINGTON Today, Wisconsin’s First District congressman and speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, announced the 19 students in the First District who would be receiving nominations for appointments to the U.S. service academies. Young men and women who wish to attend a U.S. service academy must obtain a nomination from an authorized nominating source, like a member of Congress.

Of this year’s nominees, Ryan said:

“Military service is an honorable calling. America’s service academies have the highest standards of excellence, and I am proud to nominate these young students from Wisconsin’s First District. I am more than confident that they will rise to the challenge. Should they be accepted, they will represent their state and their nation with pride. Selecting these nominees was a very tough job, and for that reason, I want to thank the members of my Service Academy Nomination Advisory Board for their advice and hard work.”

The Service Academy Nomination Advisory (SANA) Board interviewed and evaluated applicants from the First District in December 2016. Consisting of veterans, academy graduates, and educators, the SANA Board was appointed by Ryan to assist him with identifying the most qualified applicants. First District applicants are typically in the top tier of their class, are active in their communities, and demonstrate great potential for leadership.
