Five North Dakota high school students have been nominated to United States military service academies by Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D.

According to a Thursday, Nov. 11, release from Armstrong’s office, those nominated include: Lexi Kostelecky of Dickinson to the U.S. Military Academy; Griffin House of Bismarck and Saxon Weaver of Fargo to the U.S. Naval Academy and Campbell Dorsey of Grand Forks and Isabella Loberg of Wahpeton to the U.S. Air Force Academy.

“Lexi, Griffin, Saxon, Campbell, and Isabella have committed to serving our nation in the U.S. Armed Forces, and I am proud to nominate them to the service academies,” said Armstrong. “I join their family, friends, neighbors, and all North Dakotans in thanking them and wishing them the best as they represent our great state.”

Kostelecky is a senior at Trinity High School in Dickinson and House is a senior at Century High School in Bismarck. Weaver is a senior at Culver Military Academy in Indiana and Dorsey is a senior at Red River High School in Grand Forks. Loberg is a senior at Wahpeton High School.

Service academies other than the U.S. Coast Guard Academy require a nomination from a state resident’s U.S. representative, one of their U.S. senators or the vice president of the United States to attend. Each academy admission board will determine final appointments.
