Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas welcomed Macy Miller, Piedmont, Okla. native, to his district office Monday to congratulate her on her acceptance of appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point.

“I am very proud of Macy and congratulate her on her acceptance to the Military Academy,” said Lucas. “I know this will be a tremendous experience for her, and I greatly appreciate her willingness to serve our country. I wish Macy the best of luck as she begins classes at the Academy this year.”

Miller is currently a student at Casady School in Oklahoma City, Okla. She is an orange belt in karate, runs cross country and performs in musicals. She was accepted to four different Academies, however she chose the Military Academy. She is the daughter of Jonathan and LaWanda Miller.

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. 

Third District students interested in applying for the 2014 Service Academies should contact Allison Litterell in Lucas’ district office at (405) 373-1958, or visit the web site at /service-academy-nominations.
