LOCAL STUDENTS HEADED TO MILITARY ACADEMIES

Congratulations to this year's graduating classes are being passed out of Delegate to Congress Donna Christian Christensen’s office, with special recognition to her nominees for the armed service academies and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation scholarship for 2000.
The students are Morgan Callendar; Miguel Camacho; and Jesus Soler, Khalilaj Espada and Al-J Edwards. Callendar, the valedictorian for the Charlotte Amalie High School, will join the Air Force Academy's Class of 2004 in Colorado; Camacho, the valedictorian for Country Day School, will attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland; and Jesus Soler, student of the year at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, will attend the West Point Military Academy in New York.
Both Espada and Edwards, graduates of CAHS and IEKHS respectively, will receive scholarships of $500 for the upcoming school year.
"We have some very hard working students here in the territory, and I have no doubt that this year's nominees to the academies will excel in their respective programs. Although one of our nominees, Jon Francis Megahy of Country Day School was unable to be admitted to the Naval and Air Force academies because he was a few weeks shy of the age requirement, I commend him for his outstanding performance in high school. His absence, I am sure, will be a loss to both of these institutions," Delegate Christensen said.
Students who are interested in obtaining more information about educational opportunities through the armed service academies or the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation should contact the Congressional District Offices at 774-4408 or 778-5900.
