Six CFISD grads head to service academies
From a Cy-Fair ISD press release:
Six CFISD graduating seniors have received appointments to attend United States service academies in the summer.
Cy-Fair High School graduates Nina Wolf and Ayana Cameron were appointed to U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. and U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., respectively.
Cy-Fair High School is extremely proud of Ayana Cameron and Nina Wolf for earning appointments to these highly competitive service academies," said Mike Smith, Cy-Fair principal. Both of these young ladies have shown high academic achievement along with superior leadership skills, a persevering attitude and unblemished integrity. These outstanding characteristics are the foundation that helped them achieve these appointments. I am confident both Ayana and Nina will experience tremendous success in life from possessing these outstanding traits."
Langham Creek High School graduates Alex Doolittle, Mark Colby and Ivan De La Garza were all appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.
Langham Creek High School is thrilled about our three Naval Academy appointees," said Cheryl Johns, Langham Creek principal. Achieving an academy appointment is an arduous and time-consuming process. To have three Lobo students, especially these hard-working and dedicated young men, achieve the honor is outstanding. We are all so proud of these gentlemen and their willingness to so dutifully serve our country."
Cypress Woods High School graduate Kourtney Howell was also appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy.
Kourtney Howell is an exceptional student and tennis player who has represented Cypress Woods High School at the state level during her freshman and senior years," said Sue McGown, Cypress Woods principal. Cypress Woods is extremely honored to have one of our finest students attend the Naval Academy. Kourtney has been an outstanding student leader and will become a great leader for our country.
On a personal note, I am also proud to have had a son who attended Langham Creek High School and also the Naval Academy. He was a 2003 CFISD graduate and 2007 Naval Academy graduate. He is currently serving our country as a leader, so I know that it takes a great deal of courage, sacrifice, commitment, dedication, honor, integrity and leadership to reach this accomplishment and serve our country proudly."
The appointees completed several prerequisites before being accepted, including strong performance on the ACT or SAT, strong performance on a physical aptitude exam, passage of a medical examination and examples of strong leadership traits. They then had to obtain a Congressional or service-connected nomination and interview with an admission representative before waiting to see if they were among the few U.S. students selected.
