Rep. Jim Banks Announces Service Academy Nominees

(FORT WAYNE) – Today, Rep. Jim Banks announced he has nominated 8 students from Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District for acceptance to U.S. Service Academies’ Class of 2025.

Banks said: “Congratulations to these eight patriotic young men and women. They’ve already shown a remarkable commitment to their country, and I’m certain they will be excellent representatives for northeast Indiana. I wish each of them the best of luck in the final stage of the admissions process.”

Admission to a Service Academy is a two-tiered process. First, the applicant must directly apply to the Academy and meet the set minimum standards. These standards include, but are not limited to medical, physical, and academic qualifications. The second tier in pursuing admission is the nomination process. Congressman Banks’ U.S. Service Academy Advisory Board is responsible for interviewing and evaluating students seeking a nomination to U.S. Service Academies. A nomination does not guarantee admission to a service academy, but it is required to be considered.
