Amash to Recognize Service Academy Appointees and Congressional Medal of Merit Recipients

Grand Rapids, Michigan – Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) will recognize the Third Congressional District’s service academy appointees and student Congressional Medal of Merit recipients at an awards ceremony on Saturday, April 20.

“I am honored to recognize these deserving students for their outstanding achievements. I wish them great success in their future endeavors,” said Amash.

Applicants to the service academies require a nomination by a Member of Congress. To assist with the nomination process, Amash assembled a committee of military and civic leaders that interviewed potential nominees, reviewed their applications, and made recommendations.

In addition to the service academy appointees, Amash will honor 37 students with the Congressional Medal of Merit. The Congressional Medal of Merit recognizes high school seniors who have demonstrated exemplary citizenship and academic excellence. Recipients were nominated by their principals or guidance counselors.

The ceremony and parking at the Museum are free. The ceremony is open to the public and the media.
