Clovis’ Littlejohn gets nomination

Clovis High School student Bryan Littlejohn was among nine nominations to the U.S. Air Force Academy from Rep. Ben Ray Luján, according to a release from Luján’s office.

Overall, Luján sent 26 nominations for the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. Each academy requires a nomination from Congress.

“Our state has a long tradition of serving our nation in all the branches of our military. Having the chance to nominate some of New Mexico’s best and brightest young people to our United States Service Academies is a distinct honor for me each year,” said Luján. “I am proud of each of these students, who have demonstrated a commitment to service, the drive to succeed, and tremendous dedication to our state and our nation.”

Applicants must meet admission requirements for their respective academy, which makes the final decision on admission in June.
