Friday, January 20, 2023

LANSING — U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow announced today that she has nominated two Michigan students from Mid-Michigan for admission at the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY and the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD.


“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 Mid-Michigan have been nominated by Senator Stabenow to a service academy:


John Crotteau – East Lansing, Navy

Ryder Thompson – Dewitt, West Point
