Washington D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas recently welcomed Jennings, Okla. native, Abby Donajkowski to his district office to thank her for applying to the United States Merchant Marines Academy.

 “It was great visiting with Abby in my district office,” said Lucas. “Her willingness to serve our country is a true testament to the hard-working, dedicated students in the Third District of Oklahoma. I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.”

 Donajkowski graduated from home school in May 2012. She is the daughter of Dominic and Stephanie Donajkowski of Jennings. Her father was in the Army for four years and in the reserves for 22 years. 

 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’ Web site at /service-academy-nominations.
