Deadline to apply is Oct. 31
Sean Patrick Maloney, who represents Beacon and Philipstown in Congress, is accepting applications from high school seniors who would like a nomination to a service academy such as the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (where Maloney serves on the Board of Visitors), the Air Force Academy, the Naval Academy or the Merchant Marine Academy. (Students applying to the Coast Guard Academy do not need a Congressional nomination.)
Students must submit applications, which can be downloaded at seanmaloney.house.gov, to Maloney’s district office at 123 Grand St., Newburgh, NY 12550, by Oct. 31. For more information, call Oscar Dunham at 845-561-1259. Earlier this year, a dozen students from the Hudson Valley accepted offers from service academies, including Jordan Giordano of Newburgh (Navy), Michael Andrews of Beacon (Air Force) and Matthew Beisswenger of Fishkill (Merchant Marine).
