Congressman Adrian Smith nominated Cooper Smith of Tri County High School to attend the United States Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Cooper was one of 13 people from across the state nominated by Congressman Smith on Jan. 9. Con. Smith explained that the talents shown by the students are what led to their nominations from the Congressman.
“These talented young Nebraskans have demonstrated the skills and determination necessary to be the future leaders of our military, and it is an honor to nominate them to the U.S. Service Academies,” Smith said. “With their strong desire to serve our country, they have also shown dedication to their studies and a commitment to their communities. I know they will represent the Third District well.”
Members of Congress have the privilege of nominating young people for admission to the U.S. Service Academies, which include the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.
The Service Academies offer a unique opportunity for motivated students to serve their country while undergoing a rigorous academic and physical regimen. In exchange for tuition, students agree to serve in the U.S. military after graduation.
Cooper Smith, of DeWitt, is the son of Delva and Kelly Smith and is a senior at Tri County Jr./Sr. High School.
