Congressman Pfluger Delivers Military Service Academy Appointment News to Midland Legacy High Student
This week, I, a decorated fighter pilot and current Colonel in the Air Force Reserves, called Midland Legacy High School student Alessandra Lagpacan to inform her that she has received a full offer appointment from the U.S. Naval Academy.
Alessandra is a first generation American and current senior at Midland Legacy High School. Her heart has been set on serving as a pilot in the U.S. military since elementary school—when she attended a Veterans Day ceremony.
I said: “This is the American dream. We are lucky to have a generation of brave young women and men like Alessandra who are willing to step forward to defend our nation. It was an honor to have had the opportunity to share this news and hear her pride. I have no doubt that she will be incredibly successful should she accept this appointment, and I cannot wait to watch her thrive.”
Alessandra is just one of the exceptional candidates from the 11th District of Texas who, after applying for nominations through Congressman Pfluger’s office, received appointments to U.S. service academies.
For more information on applying to a service academy, visit my website. I will also host an Academy Night at 5:30pm on March 11, 2022 in San Saba, Texas at the San Saba High School. The event will provide students, parents, counselors, and educators the opportunity to learn about the Service Academy nomination process and meet with representatives from Service Academies, Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), and my office.
