Congressman Kevin Brady Announces Service Academy Appointments from Montgomery County

U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-The Woodlands) today announced that ten students from Montgomery County have received military service academy appointments after being nominated by his office.

“These young men and women honor us with their desire to serve and have been honored with an appointment to one of America’s distinguished military academies", said Brady. “Leadership matters. At a time in our nation’s history when strong military leadership is essential, Montgomery County can be as proud as I am of these young men and women. Their integrity and character are what our country seeks."

Each member of Congress is guaranteed one appointment to each of the service academies – Air Force, West Point, Naval, and Merchant Marine. The 8th Congressional District has a reputation for exceptional candidates and an extremely competitive selection process, and will send 17 young people to the academies this year. 

This year’s District 8 academy appointments from Montgomery County are:

  • Wesley Frazier, Stagecoach (Tomball HS) – Naval Academy
  • Brittany Medina, Conroe (Conroe HS) – Naval Academy
  • Matthew Benner, Pinehurst (Tomball HS) – Naval Academy
  • Michael Taylor, Spring (The John Cooper School) – West Point Academy
  • Savannah Stachowiak, Willis (Willis HS) – West Point Academy
  • Victoria Maya, Magnolia (Magnolia HS) – New Mexico Military Institute Prep School
  • Corrinne Easter, Montgomery (Montgomery HS) – Air Force Academy
  • Noel Niccum, Magnolia (Magnolia West HS) – Air Force Academy
  • Evan Pohler, The Woodlands, (Klein Oak HS) – Air Force Academy
  • Christophe Mateo, The Woodlands (Oak Ridge HS) – Air Force Academy

In order to be offered an appointment to a service academy, candidates must first be nominated by their U.S. Representative or Senator. Students interested in applying should speak with their local high school guidance counselor. Congressman Brady’s office coordinates with local high school students through these counselors. Students can also learn more about the process and download the application at http://www.house.gov/brady/academy_page.html or by contacting Justin Veillon in the Huntsville district office at 936-439-9532.
