Barrasso nominates Green River student to U.S. Service Academy

On Dec. 21, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) announced that he has nominated Green River student Triston Drozd for an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy.

“It is an honor to nominate Triston to a U.S. service academy to represent the Cowboy State. He has proven he has the academic and leadership skills needed to succeed,” said Barrasso. “If offered an appointment, I am confident he will make Wyoming very proud.”

Senator Barrasso annually nominates the most-qualified Wyoming students to compete for acceptance to the U.S. Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, Military and Naval academies. A congressional nomination is just the first step in a competitive process that can lead to an appointment.

Young men and women interested in U.S. service academies apply to members of Congress for nominations. Those nominated are screened by academy officials, and students with the best scholastic and personal credentials are selected for admission.
