Staff Report

TROY — Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Troy) has announced the appointment of 12 students to the U.S. Service Academies. The appointees include Danielle N. Mannier from Miami East High School, who will attend the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and Milan T. Bess, a Newton High School student who will attend the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School.

The students from the 8th District earned their appointments after their nomination by Congressman Davidson and the subsequent appointment by the respective academies.

The appointments come as the final step of the rigorous application process including gaining a congressional nomination. Some of the students who earned appointments will begin attending their Service Academy in the coming months. Others will spend a year at a prep school before attending.

“These students already demonstrated exceptional the intellect, athletic ability, and moral character,” said Davidson. “We are blessed when these students selflessly dedicate themselves to serving and protecting the United States of America by preparing to lead in our military by being educated at one of our Service Academies.”

Upon acceptance of the appointments, students commit to serving at least five years in their respective military branch upon graduation.

Applications for congressional nominations for the class of 2022 are available now. Interested constituents can contact Rep. Davidson’s West Chester office for more information.
