Isakson announces U.S. military academy appointees

ATLANTA -- United States Senator Johnny Isakson is proud to announce that 29 Georgia students have received appointments to prestigious military academies.

"One of my favorite tasks each year is to nominate promising young leaders to our nation's military academies," Isakson said. "This was an extremely competitive year and I congratulate these appointees who will make Georgia and America proud."

Each member of Congress must nominate young people to the nation's military academies every year.

Those who are accepted are awarded full four-year scholarships that include tuition, books, board, medical and dental care.

Isakson will host a reception for the students and their families on Sunday, June 12 at the Georgian Club (100 Galleria Parkway, Atlanta).
