DHS senior offered Naval Academy appointment
Gieorag Andrews of Gardnerville was offered an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, for the class of 2005.
According to J. R. Ryan, vice admiral of the U.S. Navy, Andrews competed with many outstanding young people in the country for admission to the undergraduate professional college of the U.S. Naval Service.
He must make his decision by May 1, 20001. If he accepts, he will be sworn in June 29, 2001, along with other members of the class of 2005.
The academy prepares young people for a challenging career as a professional Navy or Marine Corps officer, part of the tradition that has produced such American leaders as Alan Shepard, the first America in space; military leaders such as Admiral Chester Nimitz, Admiral William “Bull” Halsey and General John A. Lejeune; and Albert Michelson, the first American scientist to win a Nobel prize.
