Jan 14, 2005

(Washington, DC) - South Carolina Sixth District Congressman James E. Clyburn is pleased to announce he has recommended six Pee Dee area high school seniors for appointments to the U.S. military academies.

            Congressman Clyburn nominated the following students to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. Sarah Elizabeth Casper of Florence, the daughter of Thomas Kevin and Barbara Jean Casper, is a student at the Governor's School for Math and Sciences in Hartsville.  Shameka Fitzpatrick of Florence, the daughter of David Fitzpatrick, attends West Florence High School.  Jeramy Oliver Singletary of Timmonsville, the son of Norris and Cynethia Singletary, is a senior at Timmonsville High School.

            Congressman Clyburn nominated three Pee Dee area students to the U.S. Navel Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.  Tyler Clark of Florence, the son of Brozia and Dixie Clark, attends West Florence High School. James Sterling Hutton of Greeleyville, the son of Dargan and Marty Easler, is a student at Williamsburg Academy in Kingstree.  James Hodges Scruggs, III, of Marion, the son of James H. Scruggs, II and Karen Scruggs, attends Marion High School. 

            "I'm proud to have nominated each of these outstanding students for their potential to lead other proud men and women in uniform as they serve their country," Congressman Clyburn said. "Each of them has demonstrated their ability to be successful at these institutions and as a member of the United States military."

            Congressman Clyburn's recommendations don't guarantee acceptance to an academy, as each academy has its own admissions board to review applications and take into consider such recommendations.
