Washington, DC

Congressman Frank Lucas extends his congratulations to Enid native Bryce Kvasnicka for his acceptance of appointment at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Kvasnicka will be a member of the Naval Academy class of 2015, and begins classes there in the fall.

“I would like to congratulate Bryce on his selection to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis,” stated Lucas.  “His selection is not only a testament to his hard work, but it also demonstrates what capable and determined students we have in the Third District of Oklahoma.  This is a great opportunity for Bryce, and I wish him luck this fall and continued success in all his endeavors.”

In May, Kvasnicka will graduate as valedictorian from Chisholm High School. He serves as the captain of the baseball team, and is a member of both the National Honor Society and the school’s student council. His parents are Mr. Brent and Mrs. Lisa Coffman and the late Kevin Kvasnicka of Enid, Oklahoma.  His grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Kroll, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Coffman, and Mr. Lynn Kvasnicka and Ms. Vi Kvasnicka all of Enid, Oklahoma.

Four of our nation’s five service academies require a congressional nomination, including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Air Force Academy, and the Naval Academy.  In order to receive a nomination, the student must be between the ages of 17 and 23 and a resident of the Third Congressional District of Oklahoma.  Each academy offers young men and women a free college education at a highly ranked, nationally recognized academic program while preparing them for an officer’s commission in the armed forces upon graduation.  For more information on service academy nominations, please visit Congressman Lucas’ website at
