Rep. Schiff Nominates Local Students to U.S. Service Academics
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) announced the nomination of seven students from the 28th Congressional District to U.S. service academies for the class of 2025.
“In reviewing each of these students’ applications, I was amazed by their strong records of accomplishment in areas ranging from community service to academics to athletics,” said Rep. Schiff. “Their demonstrated commitment to make our community a better place, and their dedication to our country make each of them outstanding nominees for this profound honor. These young men and women are our nation’s future and I am so proud to submit their names for nomination to attend our U.S. Service Academies. Along with our entire community, I want to wish the nominees good luck in all their future endeavors.”
Four U.S. Service Academies, the Air Force Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy, the Military Academy at West Point, and the Naval Academy, require a nomination by a member of Congress in order to attend. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy, which is the fifth service academy, does not require a Congressional nomination. The nomination process is extremely competitive as each service academy offers those who attend a free college education at a highly ranked and nationally recognized academic institution, while simultaneously preparing these students for an officer's commission in the armed forces.
The nominees for U.S. Service Academies from the 28th Congressional District are:
Gavin Choi – (La Cañada High School and La Cañada Flintridge resident) Nominated to Military Academy and Naval Academy
Brian Thomas Di Mascio – (Burbank High School and Burbank resident) Nominated to Air Force Academy
Garri Mikhail Eremyan, II – (Fairfax High School/Military Academy Prep School and West Hollywood resident) Nominated to Military Academy
Abigail Kim – (Crescenta Valley High School and La Crescenta resident) Nominated to Naval Academy, Air Force Academy and Military Academy
Christopher Kim – (Harvard-Westlake School/Naval Academy Prep School and Los Angeles (Mt. Olympus) resident) Nominated to Naval Academy
Vincent Kim – (New Covenant Academy and La Crescenta resident) Nominated to Naval Academy, Military Academy and Air Force Academy
Anthony Gunnard Lore Starleaf - (Providence High School and Burbank resident) Nominated to Naval Academy and Military Academy
