U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren announced that 11 students from the 14th Congressional District have been selected to attend U.S. military service academies as the Class of 2022.

Hultgren hosted the selected students – including one from McHenry and one from Crystal Lake – at a formal reception at the Campton Hills district office. Factors such as academic achievement, strong character, leadership skills, physical aptitude and exceptional motivation are taken into consideration for service academy selection.

“I am incredibly proud of these
11 students who embody the best of the 14th District through their upright character and academic achievements thus far,” Hultgren said. “I was honored to nominate these individuals to our nation’s top military education institutions and look forward to following the progress of their careers.”
