Congressman Clyburn Nominates Three Midlands Students to Military Academies

Jan 14, 2005

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

Congressman Clyburn nominated Caleb P. Gibson, a native of Columbia stationed with his family at an Air Force base in the Netherlands, to the U.S. Air Force Academy. Mr. Gibson is the son of Parks and Penny Gibson, and he attends AFNORTH International High School.

The Congressman nominated Kevin Scott Seery of Hopkins to the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. Mr. Seery is the son of Kevin and Sherill Seery, and he attends Lower Richland High School.

The Congressman nominated Patrick Evan Tysinger of Eastover to the U.S. Naval Academy. Mr. Tysinger is the son of Roger and Sue Tysinger, and he attends Lower Richland 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.
