U.S. Congressman Jody Hice recently announced names of several local high school and college students whom he nominated for appointments to America's Service Academies.

Among other appointments, locally, Hice nominated Allen Dodge of Evans, student at Augusta Christian High School; Zachary Fedak of Evans, student at Greenbrier High School; and William Johnson of Warrenton, student at Briarwood Academy, who was also offered an appointment to United States Air Force Academy.

"It is my honor to offer my congratulations to these exceptional students who are among the best and brightest in the Tenth Congressional District," Hice said. "These young men and women exemplify the highest attributes of character, scholarship, and patriotism and will go on to become the future leaders of America's Armed Forces."

A nomination does not mean a student will automatically receive an offer of admission, officially referred to as an appointment. The Service Academies' admissions authorities make the final determination.

Hice made his decision after consulting with his 2016-2017 Military Academy Selection Board. He was honored to have the following members serve on his board: Stu Mosbey, Colonel, USAF (Ret.), Todd Miller, Lieutenant Colonel, USA (Ret.), Seth Hathaway, Lieutenant Colonel, USMC (Ret.), Edward Shelor, Lieutenant Colonel, USMC (Ret.), Dr. Curtis Jones, Jr., Lieutenant Colonel, USA (Ret.), and Dr. Marva Dixon.

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
