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

 Smith graduated from Meeker High School in May 2011. He is currently attending East Central University in Ada Okla. He is the son of Shawn and Rebekah Smith of Meeker, Okla. 

 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.
