Sommerlot Receives Ernst Service Academies Student Nomination

December 18, 2015

U.S Senator Joni Ernst has nominated 42 Iowa students to be considered for appointments to United States service academies.
One of the nominations for the United States Naval Academy is Danny Sommerlot of Pocahontas, a senior at Pocahontas Area High School. There are also nominations for the United States Air Force Academy, United States Military Academy at West Point, and United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Every year, Senator Ernst, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard, has the honor and responsibility of nominating Iowa students for the service academies. The admissions process at the service academies is very competitive, and Ernst encourages students to apply for more than one academy.
