On Monday Congressman Doug LaMalfa gave recognition to five northern California students, including Richard Von Brandt of Susanville, who received appointments to the United States Service Academies.

U.S. Service Academy graduates receive a first-rate undergraduate education, equivalent to that provided by a top-tier, Ivy League school, with options to pursue advanced degrees; spend a minimum of 5 years serving their country on active duty as a military officer; and are provided with an education and experience that will offer a world of career opportunities.

“The opportunities that await each of these young people at their respective academies are nearly limitless,” said LaMalfa. “Each of these students and their families should be very proud of their accomplishment and strive to get the most out of this experience. Only at the U.S. Service Academies can you get a first rate education while also directly serving your country, and I am confident they will represent the North State well.”

Congressman LaMalfa based his nominations on the recommendation of his Screening Committee, which is responsible for reviewing their files, interviewing the applicants and recommending a slate of nominees.

Richard Von Brandt will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy

LaMalfa’s four other nominees were Nathan Matalavage of Chico will attend the U.S. Naval Academy; Regan Heppe of Nevada City will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy; Savannah Feagin of Shasta Lake will attend the U.S. Military Academy and Isabel Clark of Auburn will attend the U.S. Air Force Academy.
