Milledgeville, GA – On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, the Office of Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) honored Milledgeville resident Christopher “Chris” Lirette for earning the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) Congressional Scholarship. Lt. Col. Edward Shelor, Special Assistant to Representative Hice, presented Chris with a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for his outstanding achievement.

A graduate of Washington County High School, Chris spent the past year at Marion Military Institute in Alabama. On August 11th, he heads to the University of North Georgia’s Dahlonega Campus, where he will prepare to become a commissioned officer in the United States Army. The ROTC Congressional Scholarship will provide Chris with either full tuition and fees or $10,000 per year toward room and board. He will also receive a yearly book allowance of $1,200 and a monthly stipend while attending school. Upon graduation and commissioning, Chris will have an 8-year obligation to the United States Army.

“I couldn’t be prouder of Chris for earning the Army ROTC Congressional Scholarship,” said Congressman Hice. “I’m always impressed by the caliber of young people in our community and inspired by their desire to serve our Nation. I look forward to following his career and wish him the best as he takes on this duty to protect America.”

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.
