Senator Stabenow Nominates Six Michigan Students from West Michigan to Military AcademiesFriday, January 20, 2023
LANSING — U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow announced today that she has nominated six Michigan students from West Michigan for admission at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY, the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO and the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY.
“Michigan is fortunate to have so many exceptional students who want to serve our country through military service,” said Senator Stabenow. “Having demonstrated a strong commitment to excellence in and out of the classroom, I am confident they will represent Michigan and our country well.”
Students seeking appointment to a service academy must first obtain the nomination of their U.S. Senator, their U.S. Representative, or the Vice President. Students nominated by Senator Stabenow’s office went through a highly competitive application process that included interviews by veteran, military and community leaders. Now that the students have been nominated, they must await acceptance for admission by the academy to which they have applied.
The following students from West Michigan have been nominated by Senator Stabenow to a service academy:
Anna Dinsmore – Kalamazoo, Air Force
William Gryzen – Hudsonville, Air Force
Bradley Lowe – North Muskegon, Merchant Marine
Nathan Onderlinde – Dorr, West Point
Addison Turk – Kentwood, Navy
Chase Williams – Allegan, Navy
