WASHINGTON – Three Iowa high school seniors have been selected for admission to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York, according to U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley.

 

Andrew Meyers of Reinbeck, Jindalae Suh of Iowa City, and Sean Steil of Oelwein have been offered places for the 2012-2013 school year.  Grassley nominated these students for appointments.

 

“Admission to the service academies is highly competitive and a great honor,” Grassley said.  “Young people like Andrew Meyers, Jindalae Suh and Sean Steil work very hard to earn this kind of opportunity, and I join many others, no doubt, in wishing them well and expressing appreciation for their commitment to serving our nation.”

 

Meyers will graduate in May from Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School.  He is the son of Laura and Joel Meyers.  He is a member of National Honor Society, a class officer, and active in youth group, football, basketball, and soccer.

 

Suh will graduate in May from City High School in Iowa City.  She is the daughter of Laura Ctow.  She is a member of National Honor Society and the student council.  She participates in the symphony and concert orchestra, speech, the school newspaper, diving, swimming, and soccer.

 

Steil will graduate in May from Wapsie Valley High School.  He is the son of Karla and John Steil.  He is a member of National Honor Society and the student council.  He is active in talented and gifted programs, the school musical, speech, and golf.

 

For more than 200 years, the U.S. service academies have educated and trained the best and the brightest to lead and command the U.S. armed forces.
