Media Advisory: Amash To Recognize Service Academy Nominees and Student Medal of Merit Recipients

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

“I am honored to recognize these deserving students for their outstanding achievements. I wish them the best of luck and success in the future,” 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 nominees, Amash will honor 38 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.
