Wendell Maddox, president of the United Way of Wyandotte County, has been named to U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran's Service Academy Selection Board.
He is one of 20 persons who will review applications and interview candidates for the military service academies.
“Our country is fortunate to have so many intelligent, hard-working and patriotic young men and women interested in serving our country through the Armed Forces,” Sen. Moran said. “I’m certain the Selection Board will have a challenging time narrowing the field of qualified candidates, but I value their insight and thank them for their service.”
Sen. Moran's office will accept applications for nominations to the United States Service Academies each year. The application deadline for entry in 2014 is Sept. 6, 2013.
Candidates are then required to interview with Sen. Moran’s Service Academy Selection Board. Following interviews, the board will make recommendations to Sen. Moran for his decision. If nominated, applicants must then meet the individual admission requirements of each academy. The academies will make the final decision on who will receive an appointment of admission in early 2014.
