U.S. Senator Jerry Moran, R-KS, has nominated Dawson Williams of Dodge City for admission to the United States Air Force Academy.

"Having the chance to nominate some of Kansas' best and brighest young people to our United States Service Academies is a distinct honor for me each year," said Moran. "I am proud of each and every one of these students who have demonstrated a committment to service, the drive to succeed and tremendous dedication to our state and our nation."

Interviews took place at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene. Moran’s Service Academy Selection Board considered more than 70 young Kansans interested in attending the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Academy nominees submit an application that includes a personal statement, resume, letters of reference, academic transcripts and standardized test scores. Following the interviews, the board made recommendations to Moran for his decision. Moran’s nominees must meet the individual admission requirements of each academy. The academies will make the final decision of who will receive an appointment of admission in early 2018. Those selected will enter the academies in June 2018.
