Four La Cañada Flintridge students are among the nominees to the United States Air Force, Military, Naval and Merchant Marine Academies announced Feb. 2 by Congressman David Dreier.
Nicklaus Koeppen, Alexandra Preiss, Matthew Faber and Stephen Oh — all local residents — received nominations.
“I am pleased to nominate these young people for admittance to our nation’s service academies,” Dreier said in a press release. “They are an incredibly talented and dedicated group. Each would give outstanding service to our nation as a military officer.”
Faber, a 17-year old La Cañada High senior, was nominated to attend the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y. He found out he’d been accepted into the U.S. Naval Academy, his first choice, on Feb. 10.
