Proud Salute To Academy-Bound Grads

Congressman McNerney honors area scholars selected for U.S. military academies.

Proud Salute To Academy-Bound Grads

Nine students -- six from Dublin, San Ramon and Danville -- were lauded at a Saturday reception by Congressman Jerry McNerney for their prestigious appointments to U.S. military academies.

The 2012 area high school graduates are headed to either the U.S Air Force Academy in Colorado, the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland, or U.S. Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

Military academies accept a tiny fraction of annual applicants, and nominations from such lawmakers as Rep. McNerney (D-Stockton) are key to admissions.  

The 2012 appointees honored by McNerney were:

  • Kristine Doan, San Ramon, , to the U.S. Naval Academy.
  • Rebecca Beasley, Dublin, , to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
  • Zachary Paulson, Dublin, , to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
  • Celestine Jahren, San Ramon, Valley Christian High School, to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
  • Eric Meng, Danville, , to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
  • G. Kane Franklin, Danville, San Ramon Valley High School, to the U.S. Air Force Academy.
