Last week, hometown Congressman Rep. Tom Price, MD (R-GA) personally notified Centennial senior Will Whitaker that he had earned an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Both Rep. Price and Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) nominated Will. Tens of thousands of students compete each year to be one of the approximately 1,100 freshman admitted to the Academy. Required for appointment are a rigorous application process, congressional nomination, both medical and physical exams, top-percentile SAT and ACT scores, top-tier in class rank, proven leadership roles in athletics and extracurricular activities, academic honors for extraordinary performance, exhaustive writing assignments, and an interview by a congressionally-appointed team – all of this required before the candidate is even considered by the Academy for an appointment. Centennial celebrates Will’s tremendous accomplishments!
