Senator nominates Morgan County student to United States Military Academy

Special to the Enquirer

U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby announced he has nominated 39 students from across the state of Alabama, including one from Morgan County, to attend one of the United States service academies.

Service academies include the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Juliana Elizabeth Hudry of Decatur received a nomination to the U.S. Military Academy. She is the daughter of Twila and Wayne Hudry and attends Decatur Heritage Christian Academy.

“I am honored to nominate Juliana Hudry to the U.S. Military Academy,” Shelby said. “Her academic record and achievements outside the classroom ensure she is equipped to succeed in this new endeavor.

“I wish her the best of luck in this next chapter and look forward to her future accomplishments.”

To be considered for a service academy nomination, applicants must be residents of Alabama and complete the required ACT or SAT exams. They must also provide letters of recommendation, an official school transcript, a qualifying medical examination and a completed application form, which can be found on Shelby’s website.

Although Shelby has nominated these students, the respective academies will make the final admission decision.
