US Military Schools Now Accept Local Students

This is good news for students in the US who are planning to join military academies and eventually become servicemen and women of the US forces in the future. This, as the US military schools have accepted 12 students from the 24th congressional district which represents six high schools coming from Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Reports that were sent to this paper have it that those successful applicants for the academy were identified as Anson Harvey and Krystin Shanklin, Westlake; Daniel Nelson, Oaks Christian School and Ethan Salgado of the Royal High School. There were also four students accepted to the naval academy. They were Robert Nordlund, Oaks; Blaine Worthington, Moorpark High Schools; Cooper Shockley, Weslake and Cory Poudrier of newbury Park High School. It was learned that the applicants were thoroughly screened by a board composed of retired official John Moriarity as well as Charlie Tennant of the US Military Academy, West Point; retired commander Andrew Barton and Geoff Broderick of the US Naval Academy; retired air force officials Rosemary Heredy and Maj. Carl Ferraris of the US Air Force Academy and Ken Fidyk from the US merchant marine academy.

During the screening, the committee received free CV samples from the applicant which included more information about them. This is done so that the screening committee will have good background check of the past and recent activities of the applicants before they will be included in the list for successful applicants – which shall compose the next batches of students to the US military academies, according to the report.
