HCHS senior Michael Soto is one of 38 high school students across the Commonwealth to be nominated by U.S. Senator Rand Paul to attend a U.S. service academy. Soto was nominated to attend the U.S. Military Academy.
"A very rewarding aspect of being a United States Senator is the opportunity to nominate young men and women from across the state to attend our nation's prestigious service academies. I commend each of these students for their dedication and desire to serve in the United States military, and I wish them the best through the remainder of the selection process. I have no doubt the students will proudly represent the Commonwealth of Kentucky in the services academies," Paul said in a statement.
HCPS Superintendent Terry Price pointed out that simply to be nominated in this way was quite an accomplishment.
"You should be very proud of this nomination and include it on your resume in the future," Price told Soto during a recognition at Monday night's Board of Education meeting. "We are certainly very proud of you and wish you the best as you prepare to graduate from high school and move toward your future career."
