Lucas Congratulates Stillwater Native Babak Khoshroo on His Acceptance of Appointment at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis

Jun 11, 2010

Washington, DCCongressman Frank Lucas would like to congratulate Stillwater native Babak Khoshroo for his acceptance of appointment at the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.  Khoshroo will be a member of the Naval Academy’s class of 2014 and will begin classes there in the fall.

“I would like to congratulate Babak on his selection to the United States Naval Academy at 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 Babak, and I wish him luck this fall and continued success in all his endeavors.”

In May, Khoshroo completed a year at the U.S. Naval Academy Preparatory School after having graduated from Stillwater High School in 2009.  While at Stillwater High School, Khoshroo competed on the school’s swim team, water polo team, and football team.  He also served on the student government. Khoshroo has family history of military service.  His brother Yasha will begin his second year at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in the fall and his mother is currently a captain in the United States Army.  His parents, Hamid and Roya Khoshroo, are from Stillwater, Oklahoma. 

Four of our nation’s five service academies require a congressional nomination, including the United States Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis.  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 once they graduate.  For more information on service academy nominations, please visit Congressman Lucas’ website at /service-academy-nominations
