Rep. Scott Tipton (CO-03) recently announced that 22 students from the 3rd Congressional District have earned his nomination to U.S. service academies, including two students from Delta County.
Lars Knutson of Cedaredge received an Air Force Academy nomination.
Tristan Littlejohn of Paonia received a West Point nomination.
The students selected met and exceeded the stringent requirements of the respective academy and of Tipton's office. Students who applied were required to submit an essay, test scores, an application, letters of recommendation, transcripts, and complete an in-person interview before a panel in order to be considered.
"These students have worked incredibly hard to earn a nomination, and it's a true honor to be able to recommend them to our nation's distinguished service academies. Because of their academic and extracurricular achievements, outstanding moral character, and dedication to our country, I'm confident that each of them would make dependable, capable and successful officers should they be accepted into the Academies," said Tipton. "The 3rd District is blessed to have so many talented and well-rounded young people, and I'm proud of all of the applicants for their willingness to serve, and for their impressive achievements thus far in life."
