First Congressional District

Candidates Heading to

West Point!

Three students from Florida's First Congressional District will soon be joining the Class of 2021, and two students have received appointments to the United States Military Academy Prep School.

Isabella Ekstrom of Seacoast Collegiate and Jonathan Billingslea and William Nevils, both from Pensacola High School, successfully navigated the admissions process and will soon be known as New Cadets as they begin their summer training, popularly known as Beast Barracks. LaTaysha Lovelace and Shania Harris received appointments to the USMA Prep School, which is located on the Academy grounds. That will give them a chance to compete for positions in the Class of 2022.

The members of the West Point Society of Northwest Florida extend congratulations to each of our students and wish them success as they embark on their various adventures leading to a commission as an officer in the United States Army.
