A Jackson resident and student at Rock Springs Christian Academy was among those nominated recently for admission into one of the United States service academies.

Austin Mallory was among 18 high school and college students named as nominees by U.S. Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga.

Obtaining a nomination by a congressman is one of the required steps in the process of applying to the U.S. Air Force, Naval, Military and Merchant Marine academies.

“It is my honor to nominate these exceptional students who are pursuing paths of leadership in our armed forces,” Hice said. “They have distinguished themselves among their peers by demonstrating the highest attributes of character, scholarship, physical aptitude, leadership and motivation. I’m confident that each of these students would excel at the academies and serve our nation with honor and distinction.”
