Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa said today that Hannah Morgan Fairfield of Coralville has received an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., for the 2014-2015 school year.
Fairfield is the daughter of Cathy and Clare John Fairfield of Coralville. She will graduate in May from West High School in Iowa City. Fairfield participated in basketball, tennis, National Honor Society, the Senior Mentor Program, Young Republicans, Students Against Destructive Decisions (S.A.D.D.) and served as the captain of the volleyball team
“Admission to the service academies is highly competitive and a great honor,” Grassley said. “Students work very hard to earn this kind of opportunity. I wish Hannah well and thank her for her commitment to serve our nation.”
Fairfield was among the 55 Iowans Grassley nominated this year for appointments to the U.S. service academies. Information about seeking nominations can be found on Grassley’s website.
For more than 200 years, these academies have educated and trained individuals to lead and command the U.S. armed forces.
