Washington, DC – Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Lucas would like to congratulate Yukon native Trevor Shetley for his acceptance of appointment at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Shetley will be a member of the West Point class of 2015 and will begin classes there in the fall.
“I would like to congratulate Trevor on his selection to the United States Military Academy at West Point,” 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 Trevor, and I wish him luck this fall and continued success in all his endeavors.”
In May, Shetley will graduate from Southwest Covenant School, where he serves as the captain of the golf and football teams and a member of the school’s student council. His parents are Mr. Alan and Mrs. Valerie Shetley of Yukon, Oklahoma. His grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Larry Graham of Springfield, Missouri, and Mr. and Mrs. Chris Shetley of Joplin, Missouri.
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.
