ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey recently honored 29 students from Westchester and Rockland counties, whom she nominated last December for admission to several of the nation’s service academies.

“These distinguished young Americans have answered the call to duty,” said Lowey, (D-Westchester/Rockland), at her annual Service Academy Recognition Ceremony. “I commend their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success in service to our nation. It’s an honor to work with local veterans, who have made great sacrifices to our nation, to nominate such impressive young men and women to the service academies.”

The nominees come from many communities in Lowey's 17th Congressional District, including 11 nominees from Rockland. As of today, eight students have been accepted by an academy for admission this summer and others may still receive offers of appointment. The ceremony took place at the White Plains Public Library.
