Making marks

U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-Genoa Township) has announced his nominees for admission of the U.S. Service Academies' classes of 2018.

Tiberi nominated 29 students from Ohio's 12th Congressional District for appointment to one of five U.S. Service Academies. After the nomination process, each academy evaluates each student for admission based on evidence of character, scholarship, leadership, physical aptitude, medical fitness, goals and motivation in determining each nominee's "whole-person" evaluation.

William Mooney, son of Mary and Dave Mooney of New Albany, received nominations to the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Mooney is a New Albany High School student.
