Seven Cobb County students from Georgia’s 11th Congressional District received appointments for military service academies from Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-GA, according to a news release issued Friday.
“Every year, we are proud to send some of our most talented students to our nation’s prestigious military service academies, and this year is no different,” Loudermilk said. “America is in good hands with these young leaders, and I am confident they will represent our state and district well,” he added.
The Cobb County students competed for nominations by Congressional members to U.S. service academies. When accepted, they were awarded full four-year scholarships.
